Overall smaller than the Riedel Vinum Chard glass, I like the more compact feel while holding it. The bowl has a nice taper.
We love our Riedel Sauvignon glasses from IWA. Having the glass that matches the wine you are serving makes all the difference in the flavor you enjoy. IWA has been helping us keep our wine glass collection/selection ready for any wine, any occasion since 1998.
At first I didn't care for this glass, because it doesn't sparkle like most leaded crystal, but it grew on me after using it for awhile. It works really well for outdoor dining, because of the thick base; when the wind blows the glass is steady. I've had other stemware blow right over, spilling wine everywhere, but this one was substantial enough to be unaffected. I wouldn't put it out for formal occasions, but it's a great picnic glass.
