RIEDEL "THE KEY TO WINE"

''

THE KEY TO WINE!

RIEDEL has conducted research on grape varietal perceptions

leading to the consensus agreed upon by wine experts worldwide:

that the enjoyment of a wine's aroma, taste, texture, and finish is optimized when the right "WINE TOOL" is employed - THE KEY TO WINE!
''

thin-skinned grapes

like Pinot Noir, Gamay, Nebbiolo, Champagne

Grapes with thin skins result in wines with a lighter color and body compared to thick-skinned grapes. Thin skins yield lower levels of tannins, making these wines smoother and less astringent. These wines are often described as having a silky or velvety texture on the palate. Thin-skinned grapes are more susceptible to environmental factors, which can be both an advantage and a challenge. It allows the grapes to express their unique terroir, but it also makes them more delicate and harder to cultivate.

medium-skinned Grapes

like Syrah, Shiraz, Blaufränkisch, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Grenache

Medium skin thickness provides these wines with a moderate level of tannins, resulting in wines that have very good balance and structure. Such wines can be both robust and approachable, offering a mix of red and black fruit flavors. The medium skin also allows the grapes to adapt to a wider range of climates and terroirs, resulting in versatile grape varieties suitable for growing in various wine regions around the world.

''

thick-skinned Grapes

like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot

The thick skin contains high levels of tannins and pigments, which influence
the wine's flavor and aging potential. Tannins are compounds found in grape skins, seeds, and stems that contribute to the wine's structure. The thicker skin provides a significant amount of tannins, resulting in a wine with a firm, often grippy tannic structure. The thick skin also helps protect the grapes from environmental factors, making such grapes more resilient and suitable for aging. This contributes to the wine's ability to develop complex flavors over time.

Es increíble: mi Riedel «O» Wine Tumbler cumple 20 años. En 2004 atraje la atención de la industria del vino y de la restauración con el lanzamiento de la serie «O». A las personas les encantó el concepto de una copa que ofreciera todo por lo que Riedel es famoso, pero que al mismo tiempo fuera más informal, fácil de usar, lavar, guardar y que además añadiera un elemento divertido a la experiencia de disfrutar del vino y de los destilados. En la actualidad, la colección «O» ha crecido y cuenta con más de 15 formas de copas diferentes: seis específicas según la variedad de uva y otras para espumosos, sake, destilados, agua y ginebra. El éxito de «O» es fácil de comprender: es informal, contemporáneo, chic y perfecto para los amantes de diseños sencillos y elegantes. Nuestro emplazamiento de producción en Amberg, Alemania, produjo casi 100.000.000 Tumbler «O» hasta la fecha.
