Best Glasses for Shiraz
Most people would think the shape and size of a wine glass wouldn’t have a great deal of impact on the taste of a wine. However, designing quality wine glasses is a real science. Many wine glasses are specially designed with specific grape varieties in mind (eg.Shiraz), to either emphasise and balance certain components of the wine they produce.
In fact, the same wine will taste differently when consumed in different glasses. So, if you’re a serious Shiraz drinker, like so many of us are, we’re about to take a not so serious, but very helpful look at the Top 5 Best Glasses for Shiraz.
