DetailsHandmade and mouthblown by Riedel's most senior mastercraftsmen, each Tyrol decanter is free formed and presents a unique celebration of the glassmakers art. Pure crystal presents the wine perfectly, and the decanter gives a wide area for aeration with a sleek neck for comfortable grip and an angled opening for graceful, drip-free pouring. The Tyrol decanter is designed to complement the Tyrol range of glasses, which consists of 10 different sizes and each bowl is developed for the enjoyment of popular grape varieties and soft drinks. The name Tyrol commemorates Riedels new start 50 years ago in Austria in the federal State of Tyrol.
Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging.(Thoughts on decanting by Christian Moueix)Measurements
