Explaining the concept of RIEDEL WINEWINGS we chose a flat and stretched bottom with a wing-like shape to increase the surface area the wine is exposed to which increases the levels of evaporation and enables a greater intensity of aroma When positioning ones head to the glass the nose is closer and is exposed to the wider surface of the wine Though this alone would not fully deliver the optimal aroma of each grape variety and so to capture the delicate layered aromas it was necessary to curve the glass walls and to correctly calibrate the opening of each glass with its rim diameter RIEDEL WINEWINGS has seven glasses in total Three for red wines three for white and one for Champagne and sparkling wines The Champagne glass in the Riedel Winewings collection is a true loudspeaker for this prestigious wine which is made from Pinot Noir and/or Chardonnay grapes With Champagne a second fermentation is triggered in the bottle by adding a fine measured quantity of yeast and sugar to the still wine Over time and under pressure fine bubbles are created by this process The glass elevates the delicate aromas of sweet toasted bread and enables a sensual mouthfeel with the tiny bubbles expressing a lively yet creamy texture of the palate The rich taste is enhanced by low levels of residual sugar allowing a long lasting and delicious expression
