The Riedel Wine Glass Company is an incredible 300 year-old family business from Austria who are credited with revolutionizing glassware. Mr Georg Riedel himself-10th generation family member-was in Rutherglen on Wednesday 19th March to taste the region’s top Muscats in order to discuss and deliberate on the best style of glass to enjoy these wines. The vision is to design Rutherglen’s very own unique Riedel glass.
The tasting involved 14 different types of glasses and was whittled down to 3. The best one to be chosen will ensure that the flavours and textures of Rutherglen Muscat are enhanced. Wendy Killeen attended the event and enthused the tasting was “sensational” and it was very exciting to see The Muscat of Rutherglen Group come together as a cohesive and productive group in order to organise and host this event with such a special outcome.
Anyone who has tasted and enjoyed these wines will understand how luxurious these wines are to share, not only from their historical value to the Australian wine industry but also because of the divine flavours and complexity. To have its own glass made by the world’s best glass producer is a fitting tribute and no doubt will further enhance the exquisite tasting experience of Rutherglen Muscats.
