About the Riedel Sommeliers Crystal Hermitage Glass

’My first thoughts about a dedicated glass for the Syrah date from a visit I made to the Guigal family in 1992’ says Georg Riedel. ’Until that time we had always suggested our Burgundy glasses as being best suited for Syrah. But faced with wines of such magnificence I began to think that perhaps we could find a superior alternative.’

The Syrah variety was first planted in the Northern Rhone region by the Romans. It produces deeply pigmented, well-structured wines with excellent ageing potential. The glass was developed between 1993 and 1995 following tastings in the major Syrah-growing regions, with many influential winemakers kindly contributing their views. It is shaped to deliver the classic Syrah aromas of toast and black olives.

On the palate, it brings out the wine’s silky, velvety structure and balanced flavours. The tannins melt into the fruit, appearing sweet rather than acerbic on the back palate.
