Riedel Open Ended Black Tie Decanter

Now, at £375 the Riedel Black Tie decanter may be a slightly extravagant purchase but it’s one I’m sure any wine lover would appreciate and have on their birthday or Christmas list.

This beautiful decanter is mouth blown which basically means the glass blower threw away the mould which guarantees that no two decanters will ever be the same and because it’s mouth blown the length is determined by the blower’s arm, I’m assuming Riedel don’t employ short armed blowers but you never know!

While the glass is still molten a crystal rod, blackened by manganese oxide, is applied which gives it the distinctive dark line and due to its open-ended design your wine achieves greater aeration as it gurgles through, taking on more oxygen each time you pour from it. Whether it will improve the taste of Blue Nun is anyone’s guess but if anything can improve the taste, this decanter can!
