This Riedel Horse Decanter was designed by Riedel to celebrate 2014 as the Chinese Year of the Horse.
It has a profile of a horse head within its interior which, when there is wine in the decanter, looks like it is quietly sipping! The ideal gift for a horse lover.
Once you have poured your wine into the decanter, you should gently shake it until tiny bubbles form on the surface. This helps to oxygenate the wine and enhance its flavour.
Riedel CEO Maximillian Riedel says “I have long been fascinated by horses, both as animals of strength as well as of elegance, in addition to the role they have played for generations in cultures throughout the world.
In the Riedel Horse decanter, I strove to create a functional and powerful wine tool that simultaneously reflects the innate beauty, sophistication, and authority of a horse.
Mouth blown, the Riedel Horse Decanter is handcrafted from lead-free crystal.
