Riedel Limited Edition Handcrafted “Cobra Verde” Decanter
October 28, 2012 by admin

For the first time in its 250 years of history, Austria-based glassware maker Riedel has created a decanter for 1.5L magnum bottles, and it’s no ordinary vessel. The limited edition “Cobra Verde” is designed to look like its namesake snake, a provoked green cobra with a coiled base, producing a double-decanting vacuum to accelerate the aeration process.

Released in May 2012, the handmade decanter helps mark the 55th anniversary of the re-opening of Riedel’s headquarters after World War II, and each of the 555 decanters are individually numbered and bear the reproduced signature of Claus J Riedel, the ninth-generation glassmaker who re-opened the factory.

Riedel’s approach to decanting is both functional and artistic. Distinguished by its serpentine-like curves and striking design, the “Cobra Verde” decanter stands at 65cm and features a rippled ribbon of green-hued crystal that winds from the spout to the base. The snakelike shape and coiled base resembles a cobra’s majestic striking stance and produces a powerful double-decanting vacuum to accelerate the aeration process for significantly aged or cellared wines.

Highly prized by collectors, this unique mouth-blown, handmade glassware doubles as an exclusive piece of art and is the first decanter in Riedel’s 250-year history made for magnum-sized wine bottles (1.5 litres). Each “Cobra Verde” decanter comes encased in a luxurious wooden box designed to protect its precious cargo.
