Riedel Sommeliers Sauternes #5305
- The shape directs the wine to the places on the palate where the sweetness doesn't overshadow the special acidic zest.
- The deep golden hue of a well-aged Sauternes is maximized by the brilliance of mouth-blown 24 percent lead crystal.
- Stands 7-7/8 inches tall, with a maximum capacity of 13.8 oz. for an average serving size of 4.5 oz.
Recommended for: Ausbruch, Auslese (sweet), Barsac, Beerenauslese, Dessertwine, Jurancon Moelleux, Monbazillac, Recioto di Soave, Sauternes, Trockenbeerenauslese, Vins Liquoreux
