Cabernet Savignon or Cabernet Franc
Riedel Winewings – Cabernet
Based on a long-standing ethos of forward thinking, Riedel pioneered the development of wine-friendly and varietal-specific glass collections. 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 colour, bouquet and taste, but often the glass is not considered as an instrument to convey the wine’s message. The same wine will display completely differently characteristics when served in a variety of glasses. The differences are so great that even experienced connoisseurs are made to believe that they are tasting different wines. The grape variety is the key factor in determining the relationship between fruit, acidity, tannin and alcohol, and Riedel glasses consider these factors when designing each of their innovative products which have become the benchmark in the industry.
The Cabernet Sauvignon glass is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin.
The glass allows the bouquet to develop fully, and smooths out the rough edges. It emphasizes the fruit, playing down the bitter qualities of the tannin, and allows wines to achieve balance.
