The brilliantly modern Altitude Matters Decanter presents a classic RIEDEL design with a new twist: the profile of the Kaiser Mountains in Tyrol, Austria. This stunning mountain range has been the backdrop of nearly the last decade of history for the Riedel family, only a short drive from the RIEDEL Head Office and handmade factory. Fittingly, this profile sits with a redesign of the Tyrol decanter, which debuted in 2007 to commemorate the family rebuilding their dynasty in Tyrol following WWII. Slightly smaller than the original Tyrol, the eye-catching shape of this decanter makes it ideal for younger wines. Its wide base ensures optimum aeration while the angled lip guarantees an easy pour.
This decanter is designed to hold a single bottle of wine. This pack contains a single piece. This product is handmade. Please handwash only.
RIEDEL WHOLE-HEARTEDLY BELIEVES ALL WINES - YOUNG AND OLD, RED, WHITE OR SPARKLING - CAN BE ENHANCED BY DECANTING.
There are two reasons why we decant wines:
Decant an older wine to separate it from its sediment.
Decant a younger wine to increase aeration, revealing more complexity, and opening up aromas and flavours.
On the palate, decanted wine expresses higher levels of fruit in red wines and tends to integrate and smooth out tannins.
We offer a wide range of elegant machine-blown and extravagant hand-made decanters to honour good wines with the treatment they deserve.
Every hand-made product is crafted by highly talented master glass blowers, using glass making techniques which date back more than 2000 years.
All decanters are made from crystal glass suitable for every lifestyle and available at every price range.
Every single decanter is a must-have for wine lovers.
