Riedel | Performance Tasting Set

$118.00

This set contains of 4 pieces RIEDEL Performance: Cabernet/Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The shape of the Cabernet/Merlot glass showcases the majestically structured red wines in all their complexity and finesse. The shape of the Sauvignon Blanc glass shows the combination of fruit and acidity perfectly balanced on the palate, giving a harmonious taste experience. The shape of the Pinot Noir bowl supports peatiness flavor and the taste of plum of these sensual red wines. The size of the Chardonnay bowl 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.

Caring for your RIEDEL Crystal

  • RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe. RIEDEL exclusively recommends MIELE
  • To avoid stains: use soft water (low mineral content)
  • To avoid scratches: Avoid glass contact with other glass or metal
  • To remove stains: use white vinegar
  • If available use a stemware rack

If washing by hand

  • Wash the glass under warm water (use detergent and rinse the glass carefully)
  • Glass polishing: Use two polishing cloths, never hold the glass by the base to polish the bowl
  • Stem snap: Occurs through mishandling = torque or bend pressure at the stem
  • Storage: Avoid glass storage in kitchen cabinets which have strong aromas that translates into glass

Microfiber Polishing Cloth

  • Wash at boiling temperature (to kill bacteria) with odorless soap
  • Should be machine washed at min. 170° F/75° C
  • Never use fabric softener when rinsing your microfiber polishing cloth (avoids grease film on surface)
