We’re often asked, “What’s the best glass to serve premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in?”
When selecting your glassware it’s important to consider that glass shape can provide a unique experience for drinking your wine.
One glass is not ideal for all styles of wine; a wine’s bouquet, taste, balance and finish are all affected by the shape of the glass from which it is consumed. A wine will display completely different characteristics when served in different glasses.
These differences can be so great, that when the same wine is served in several different glasses, even experienced wine connoisseurs believe that they are tasting as many different wines as there are glasses.
Grape varietals carry in their DNA unmistakeable flavor profiles, which adds to the importance of selecting the appropriate glass.
Grape varietal specific stemware has to translate the “message” of the wine to the human senses.
There are 4 sensations in wine.
- Bouquet: Grape varietal specific stemware is responsible for delivering the quality and intensity of the wine’s aroma.
- Texture: Grape varietal specific stemware highlights the exciting and diverse styles of “mouthfeel” in wine (watery, creamy, silky, velvety).
- Flavour: Grape varietal specific stemware creates a balanced interaction between the fruit, minerality, acidity and bitter components of a wine.
- Finish: Grape varietal specific stemware offers a pleasant, seamless, harmonious, and long lasting aftertaste.
