Extreme Crystal for Extreme Aussie Shiraz
With the help of Penfold’s Wines Riedel has made a Vinum Extreme Shiraz glass. In the words of Mr Georg Riedel the aim was "to create the missing link in the sequence of a wine's journey from the earth to the palate".

"These are made for more powerful wines with the aim of providing more balance for the consumer," Mr Riedel said. "A lot of your wines are consumed at a relatively young age and the glasses can play an important role."

A Vinum Extreme Shiraz glass will set you back about $30USD ($54AUD). I guess that Styrofoam cup I’ve been using is getting just a bit passĂ©.
