Description

Launched in 2008. There is no more elegant bird than the Swan, so Riedel thought it only fitting that their new Swan decanter should embody the same natural grace. The body of the decanter mimics the gentle curvature of the form of a Swan, forming "J" shape with an exaggeratedly elongated straight neck that narrows to the elliptical lip. Wine is simply poured into the wider opening of the Swan's "tail" (which also forms a natural handle for services) then effortlessly poured into the glass from the narrow "neck". As fascinating to look at as it is functional to use, the Swan decanter does the job of separating sediment from older wines, while allowing the younger ones to aerate and mature. Mouth-blown and made of fine crystal, the Swan holds a standard 750ml bottle of wine.

"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.
