Vinum was the first machine-made series of glasses in history based exclusively on the characteristics of grape varietals. Vinum has had a permanent impact on the globe's wine culture. These glasses have proved that the pleasures of consuming wine start with the glass. The Vinum Syrah / Shiraz glass shape was developed between 1993 and 1995 following tastings in the major Syrah growing regions, when most influential winemakers contributed their views on how the message of their wines should be put across. The wines made from the Australian grape variety Shiraz, give a deep purple, almost inky color. The nose resembles intense, rich blackberry aromas. The flavors on the palate show mouth-filling fruit, massive structure and a long sweet finish. The Syrah glass highlights the tannins, offering a perfect balance with the overwhelmingly concentrated fruit. Recommended for: Amarone, Blaufränkisch, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Grenache, Hermitage rouge, Malbec, Mourvèdre, Pinotage, Shiraz, Syrah.
