RIEDEL Decanter Girafe

This innovative decanter named The Girafe was created to offer a solution to the separation of sediments, a bothersome side effect for those that like to enjoy fine aged wines and has proven difficult or even impossible to solve to date. The name of this latest decanter developed by Maximilian J. Riedel, was inspired by its long neck which remidned the 11th generation CEO of a Giraffe. On the one hand, the design gives the decanter grace and elegance, and on the other hand – arguably more important point – the shape fulfils a vital purpose: “It agglomerates, or collects, the sediments in the curves at the base of the decanter neck – at the shoulder, in a manner of speaking. The shape keeps the sediments from being poured out with the wine, which solves the annoying problem of sediments in the wine glass. This is definitely good news for lovers of aged wines!” says Maximilian Riedel, pleased with his successful design. Girafe is handmade in crystal glass.

Decanters

There are two reasons why we decant wines:

  1. Decant an older wine to separate it from its sediment.
  2. 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 fine crystal glass suitable for every lifestyle and available at every price range.

Every single decanter is a must-have for wine lovers.
