Black Tie Touch Decanter by Riedel

Black Tie Touch Decanter

by Riedel

Producer : Riedel

Region : Austria (Austria)

Tasting Notes

Seemingly defying gravity, the Touch decanter rests confidently on an asymmetrically bulb-shaped base with a ridge tapered into an elegantly angled neck. This ridge effectively acts as an integrated handle, guaranteeing a comfortable grip in the hand. This daring decanter is mouthblown and formed by hand, making each a unique work of art.

Like the rest of the Black Tie collection, Touch is dressed up with a black tuxedo stripe that extends gracefully from top to bottom. This is achieved by introducing a rod of black crystal into the molten glass before the decanter has been formed.

This decanter is designed for a single bottle of wine. Product is handmade. Please handwash only.

The Producer

Riedel

When developing a glass, RIEDEL's design ideas are not born on a drawing board, but shaped by trial and error with the help and support of the world's greatest palates. A person interested in wine is led by color, bouquet and taste, but often the glass is not considered as an instrument to convey the wine's message. Over the years, RIEDEL has acquired some interesting scientific explanations as to why the shape of a glass influences the bouquet and taste of alcoholic beverages. The first discovery was made while enjoying wine. The same wine displayed completely differently characteristics when served in a variety of glasses. The differences were so great that experienced connoisseurs were made to believe that they were tasting different wines. The grape variety is the key factor in determining the relationship between fruit, acidity, tannin and alcohol. As the next step, RIEDEL was able to create shapes in which the wine, vinified from specific grape varieties, seemed to improve. We started to recognize the complex role that size and shape play in conveying the message of a fine wine.
