The durable machine-made Syrah and Shiraz glass of the functional glass collection Wine features a light-catching, decorative stem. It is shaped to deliver the classic Syrah aromas of toast and black olives. On the palate, it brings out the wine's silky, velvety structure and balanced flavours. The tannins melt into the fruit, appearing sweet rather than acerbic on the back palate. This special collection was created for customers, who feel that plain stemware on a well laid table is just not decorative enought. All RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe.
