The handmade decanter distinguishes by an elegant and complex design.
RIEDEL celebrated the the Year of the Snake with this decanter. To commemorate the sign, which represents power, among other qualities, Maximilian J. RIEDEL, 11th-generation head of RIEDEL Crystal, designed the BOA decanter, the house’s most powerful decanter yet.
The BOA, RIEDEL’s latest powerful “wine tool,” which advances “double-decanting” technology to accelerate the aeration of wine, features a more tightly-coiled body, which brings wines to full flavour profile potential when decanted even more quickly than other RIEDEL decanters.
For the BOA, Maximilian took inspiration from his travels throughout North and South America, the native home of the boa constrictor. Having moved from Austria to RIEDEL Crystal, Maximilian has spent over ten years building RIEDEL’s business in the Western Hemisphere, while also enjoying frequent travel to Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and more, where the creature is quite prevalent.
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.
