About the Riedel Tasting Performance Set

This set contains 4 pieces Performance: Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay. The machine-made tasting set of the technologically advanced glass collection Performance is the new ultimate loudspeaker for fine wine. The Cabernet glass showcases the majestically structured red wines in all their complexity and finesse. The shape of the bowl of the Pinot Noir glass supports peatiness flavor and the taste of plum of these sensual red wines. The shape of the Riesling glass best supports the characteristic bouquet of floral white wines – aroma and taste are dominated by fermented grape juice and the flavor of yeast. The size of the bowl of the Chardonnay glass allows space for the rich bouquet to develop its superbly diverse range of aromas, while minimizing the risk of becoming over concentrated. Performance is the first RIEDEL wine glass series ever to feature bowls with a light optic impact, which not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but also increases the inner surface area. All RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe.
