Different shaped stemware is used to accentuate the unique characteristics of different wine varieties. If you want to buy a personalised wine glass based on the recipient’s preferences, or intend to give away a bottle with your gift, it’s important to know the distinguishing features. Here’s how to select a particular glass by wine type.
Red wine - glasses have a rounder, wider bowl, to increase the rate of oxidation (a chemical reaction that occurs when the wine is exposed to air which alters the flavour and bouquet). A Bordeaux glass is used for full-bodied reds, it’s taller with a very large bowl designed to direct the wine to the back of the mouth.
White wine - glasses tend to have a smaller mouth, this reduces the surface area and thus the level of oxidation to preserve crisp, clean flavours. However, a wider mouth glass should be used for full-flavoured wines like oaked chardonnay which is ideally served slightly oxidised.
Sparkling wine - should be served in a champagne flute, a long stemmed glass with a tall, narrow bowl on top. This shape is used to retain the carbonation in the beverage by reducing the surface area at the opening.
Choose more economical glass for large-scale promotional business gifts. Select exquisite crystal when you want to make an impression, or mark an occasion. Lead crystal wine glasses are not just highly-prized for their aesthetic qualities. Crystal actually enhances the tasting experience.
Firstly, it has a higher index of refraction, which allows you to fully appreciate the wine’s colour. Secondly, on a microscopic level, crystal is rougher than glass, allowing the wine to breathe more when swirled in the bowl.
