This set contains 4 pieces Performance: Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay. The machine-made tasting set of the technologically advanced glass collection Performance is the new ultimate loudspeaker for fine wine. The Cabernet glass showcases the majestically structured red wines in all their complexity and finesse. The shape of the bowl of the Pinot Noir glass supports peatiness flavor and the taste of plum of these sensual red wines. The shape of the Riesling glass best supports the characteristic bouquet of floral white wines – aroma and taste are dominated by fermented grape juice and the flavor of yeast. The size of the bowl of the Chardonnay glass allows space for the rich bouquet to develop its superbly diverse range of aromas, while minimizing the risk of becoming over concentrated. Performance is the first RIEDEL wine glass series ever to feature bowls with a light optic impact, which not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but also increases the inner surface area. All RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe.
With three generations of research, development and experience in creating functional, grape varietal specific glassware, Georg and Maximilian Riedel challenged themselves to improve on what had gone before. The result is Performance – a technologically advanced and user-friendly collection of grape varietal specific glasses. Performance is the first Riedel wine glass series ever to feature bowls with a light optic effect. Detailed research by the Riedel family, aimed at improving the organoleptic wine experience, revealed that increasing the inner surface area of the glass had a positive impact on the perception of the bouquet and flavour of the wine. This was achieved through a unique optical effect, which not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but also increases the inner surface area, allowing the wine to open up and to fully show every aroma and subtle nuance. Consisting of seven machine-made, lightweight, durable and dishwasher-safe shapes, Performance glasses are executed in sparkling fine crystal and feature fine stems and large stable bases. The new bowl shapes in Performance, when combined with the optic effect, deliver ultimate wine enjoyment, making Performance the new essential ‘must-have’ wine glass collection.
