RIEDEL Wine wings are flat-bottomed and reminiscent of an aircraft wing, complete with winglets. While not the most visually beautiful collection, RIEDEL Wine wings is, according to Georg Riedel, “brutally functional, taking the wine’s aromas and flavors on a flight. The impact of this new shape is a collection for the true wine connoisseur. For the first time, the RIEDEL Wine wings glasses primarily emphasize the minerality of the wine, whereas all other collections tend to highlight fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon glass is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin. The glass allows the bouquet to develop fully, and smooths out the rough edges. It emphasizes the fruit, playing down the bitter qualities of the tannin, and allows wines to achieve balance.
