RIEDEL Chinese Zodiac Ox Decanter
To celebrate the Year of the Ox, RIEDEL introduces its new Zodiac Ox Decanter.
This elegant and easy-to-use decanter includes a decorative representation of the zodiac symbol for the Ox. This plate can also be used as a convenient handle when pouring.
Presented with a red and gold stripe down one side, the Zodiac Ox Decanter allows you to bestow good fortune, good luck, and happiness on the wine lover in your life. This colour in this handmade decanter is achieved by introducing rods of coloured crystal into the molten glass before the decanter has been formed.
RIEDEL offer a wide range of elegant mouth-blown decanters, suitable for every lifestyle.
This decanter is designed to hold a single bottle of wine.
This product is handmade. Please handwash only.

Due to the nature of crafting, small tolerances in the size and weight of each product, tiny bubbles, imperfections, or slight surface variations are an acceptable part of the process.

There are two reasons why we decant wines:
- Decant an older wine to separate it from its sediment.
- Decant a younger wine to increase aeration, revealing more complexity, and opening up aromas and flavors.
On the palate, decanted wine expresses higher levels of fruit in red wines and tends to integrate and smooth out tannins.
We offer a wide range of elegant machine-blown and extravagant hand-made decanters to honor good wines with the treatment they deserve.
Every hand-made product is crafted by highly talented master glass blowers, using glass making techniques which date back more than 2000 years.
All decanters are made from crystal glass suitable for every lifestyle and available at every price range.
Every single decanter is a must-have for wine lovers.
