VINUM (1986) is Riedel's basic stemmed series. This series was created by Georg J. Riedel, based on the Sommeliers range, in order to make Riedel varietal-specific glassware more accessible to the general consumer.
This shape was developed between 1993 and 1995 following tastings in the major Syrah growing regions, when most influential winemakers contributed their views on how the message of their wines should be put across. The wines made from the Australian grape variety Shiraz, give a deep purple, almost inky color. The nose resembles intense, rich blackberry aromas. The flavors on the palate show mouthfilling fruit, massive structure and a long sweet finish. The Shiraz glass highlights the tannins, offering a perfect balance with the overwhelmingly concentrated fruit.
Ideal for following grapes:
Alma Valley, Carmenère, Malbec, Nero d'Avola, Petite Sirah, Pinotage, Shiraz New World, Tannat
