Made from the finest crystal and mouth-blown in Kufstein, Austria, the striking decanter is ornamented with the howling profile of a dog’s head on the inside, to celebrate the dawn of the Year of the Dog in the Chinese zodiac calendar. Standing at an impressive 44cm tall, the decanter is adorned from base to mouth with stripes of coloured crystal in black and red – the colour of luck, success and happiness – making a dramatic centerpiece to any dinner table. The dog’s concave profile greatly assists the decanting process, by swirling and aerating wine as it is being poured in. After pouring, the vessel can be gently shaken until a thin layer of bubbles forms.

This helps to oxygenate the wine, dramatically improving the flavour profile of the given grape varietal. Characterised by loyalty, honesty and intelligence, the Dog is one of 12 animals in the zodiac. Maximilian J. Riedel, the 11th generation CEO and President explains, “We now have a tradition to uphold in terms of the Chinese calendar. Our first decanter in this series was the Dragon in 2012. After that came Boa the snake in 2013, the Horse in 2014 and Ayam the rooster in 2017.”
