This shape was developed between 1993 and 1995 following tastings in the major Syrah growing regions, when most influential winemakers contributed their views on how the message of their wines should be put across.
The wines made from the Australian grape variety Shiraz, give a deep purple, almost inky color. The nose resembles intense, rich blackberry aromas. The flavors on the palate show mouthfilling fruit, massive structure and a long sweet finish.
The Syrah glass highlights the tannins, offering a perfect balance with the overwhelmingly concentrated fruit.
A family-owned company since 1756, Riedel produces the machine-made Vinum series at its factory in Germany.
VINUM (1986) became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietal. VINUM was not developed on a drawing board, but in tasting work shops based on the performance where the content commands the shape. The pleasure of enjoying fine wine starts with the right glass.
