The name of this glass series says it all: High performance in functionality and design.
The bowls with optical effect delivered a perfect “performance” at numerous international tastings, where the glass received top ratings.The machine-made optical effect has a positive impact on the taste experience. Not only does it add a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but it also increases its inner surface area, allowing the wine to open up and to fully develop its aroma, with all of its subtle nuances.
With a height of 32.5cm, the High Performance glasses are true eye-catchers. Elegant and unique in both design and functionality like all Riedel glasses, the High Performance glasses are works of art that give any setting, whether party or dinner, an exclusive touch.
The stems – available in red, black, gold or transparent – are affixed with meticulous care in the factory in Kufstein. The black stem is made entirely in black, while the colour of the other stems is only in the centre and coated with a transparent layer.
The High Performance glasses are available as Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Champagne glasses.
The glasses in this series are made of crystal glass and are dishwasher safe.
