Riedel, Extreme Riesling, BOX OF 2
The Riesling glass is perfect for balancing the high acidity and residual sugar of fruit-forward white wines. This shape is the most versatile white wine glass in the RIEDEL range. It helps to balance the fresh characters and high mineral components, emphasizing the wonderful fruit aromas. The EXTREME glasses derive their name from their extreme contours. The bowls are reminiscent of polished diamonds that spread out wide and taper off at the top. This allows the wine plenty of room to breathe, enhancing and emphasizing the pleasant softness and generally fruity notes of the New World wines.

About the Merchant
Riedel | Kufstein, Austria | Est. 1756
Ninth Generation family member Claus J. Riedel revolutionized glassware, designing the first-ever “Sommelier” stemware collection with each glass crafted uniquely to the character of each wine. Family-owned in Austria since the 17th century, these hand-crafted Austrian crystal glasses are varietal-specific, meaning there is a specific glass for each wine region, designed + dedicated enhance the taste of that wine to its fullest potential. Insufficiently-sized glasses will cause various wines to have faults that they otherwise wouldn’t have, such as overly mineral, bitter, or harsh characteristics. Tastings at Logan Mercantile are encouraged – see for yourself the difference a quality, customized glass design makes.
