Standing 9 ½ inches tall, the Swirl decanter is a machine-made design priced and affordably. Since Riedel whole-heartedly believes almost all wines - young and old, red, white or sparkling - can be enhanced by decanting, it is only natural that they would have over 40 decanters in their collection, many elegant, complex, mouth-blown designs. For the more relaxed wine drinker, looking for a simpler design, the Swirl decanter is the perfect addition to their wine accessory collection. This decanter's shape also makes it ideal for decanting white wines or champagnes as the vessel fits into a standard wine cooler or refrigerator allowing for the wine to remain chilled at the perfect temperature.
Swirling your wine in both the decanter and the glass is an important part of wine enjoyment as it helps to open up and aerate the wine, releasing all the aromas and flavors that the wine has to offer. This spring, Riedel crystal debuts a new, more casual design that helps you to do just that: The Swirl collection. Named for the ease with which it allows you to swirl your wine, the Swirl collection offers a rippled shape with subtle grooves that help guide the wine around and around the vessel. With just a slight movement of your hand, the wine is effortlessly opened and aerated with each gentle swirl. This non-lead collection includes a decanter, red wine tumbler, and white
While an incredibly functional design for wine, the Swirl collection is also versatile. Both the decanter and glasses are perfect for serving a wide variety of beverages such as water, juice, margaritas or even sangria with its layered fruit.Sku: LQ1456-13
