Georg Riedel challenged his world class glass makers to create from lead crystal, the finest and lightest machine blown glass ever made. He proposed that it should be visually stunning, a delight to hold and price comparative against hand made glasses.
The result is Veritas, a range of glasses that are 15% taller than Vinum and 25% lighter, while still being dishwasher safe, break resistant and suitable for everyday use.
The wines made from the Australian grape variety Shiraz, give a deep purple, almost inky color. The nose resembles intense, rich blackberry aromas. The flavors on the palate show mouth filling fruit, massive structure and a long sweet finish.
The Riedel Veritas New World Shiraz glass highlights the tannins, offering a perfect balance with the overwhelmingly concentrated fruit.
Georg Riedel says "Veritas combines the charm of a handmade glass with the consistent accuracy only a machine made glass can achieve."
