Description

Launched in 2008. Handmade by only our top master glassblowers in the finest fine crystal. Famed for their vibrant pink colour and long, stick-like legs, the Flamingo is an immediately recognised bird. Equally distinctive is Riedel's new Flamingo decanter - though it's not at all pink. Flamingo has a broad, bulb-shaped base and an exaggerated long and slender neck reminiscent of the legs of the bird for which it was named. The extended neck has a lip that shears off at an acute angle and both characteristics provide an easier pour. The base thoughtfully features a very deep punt that accommodates the entire thumb, while allowing the remaining fingers to securely cradle the outside of the decanter. This design provides perfect stability and control when pouring, but also catches sediment and reinforces the strength of the decanter. The Flamingo holds a standard 750ml bottle of wine. And for those who prefer their Flamingoes pink, Riedel suggests a nice bottle of Rose.

"I prefer to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young wines. Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging." - (thoughts on decanting by Christian Moueix)

Riedel

Riedel is shipped free across Canada on orders over $99. Riedel has been producing hand-blown wine glasses since the 1950's, but what has distinguished them from other manufacturers is their discovery In 1973 that the bouquet, taste, balance, and finish of wines is affected by the shape of the glass from which the wine is drank from. With this knowledge Riedel has produced many different shapes of wine glasses to best highlight the different characteristics of different types of wine, and today offers over 150 different wine glasses and wine products to best showcase your wine.
