The Merlot wine glass was created to enhance the flavours of this popular and widely grown grape variety. The Merlot based wines of California, Chile, and the rest of the New World, differ in structure from the classic Merlot wines of France and Italy. The key difference is that New World Merlot is higher in alcohol and lower in acidity. To truly appreciate these differences in flavour you need a wine glass that has been specifically designed for the job.
The bowl shape of this wine glass releases the warm aromatic tones of the wine, while the sharply tapered lip creates a freshness, capitalising on the wine's natural acidity for an extremely balanced taste. It's also a particularly good wine glass for Iberian wines made with the Tempranillo grape. And it's great with Southern Rhone reds made from Grenache too. That's good news for fans of Rioja or Chateauneuf du Pape.
These fabulous crystal wine glasses are handmade in England and are dishwasher safe.
Adding an engraved name, sentiment or message is a great way to create a unique and special gift. Whatever the occasion or special day, it will always be remembered when you give them a gift of Dartington that has been professionally engraved to the highest standard.
