The sensuous, serpentine curves of Riedel's new crystal, mouth-blown Eve decanter are not only seductive, but functional. This design tour de force double decants your wine as it flows through the coiled shape. Serving wine becomes a performance as the decanter's twist and turns require the same movement by you - turning the decanter in a slow 360 degree rotation to 'charge' the decanter and allow the wine to pour. EVE is a decanter that also speaks - it emits a sound akin to the gurgle of the King Cobra as the wine makes its trip through the curvaceous swirl of glass. Eve's long graceful neck means that you can easily pour a guest across the table without moving from your spot.
The Eve decanter, designed by Maximilian Riedel in 2008, is a tribute to the family's matriarch, Eva Riedel. Each Eve decanter is free blown by a master glass blower in Austria and is a unique and functional work of art.
Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging. The EVE decanter achieves these same results immediately, by allowing for the maximum effect of oxygen on the young tannins and aromas of the wine - liberating the aromas, intensifying the fruitiness of the mid-palate and rounding out the texture.
