GLASS ACT

Cuisine - - CRISPY BITS -

Soon to be seen ev­ery­where in Marl­bor­ough will be the new Riedel Ver­i­tas Sau­vi­gnon Blanc glass, de­signed to show­case New World ex­pres­sions of the va­ri­ety. Wine Marl­bor­ough signed up for a con­tainer load of the new glasses, all branded “Marl­bor­ough, New Zealand”. The con­tainer has yet to make land­fall, but al­ready 9000 of its 12,000 glasses have been bought by Marl­bor­ough winer­ies and busi­nesses. While the glass was not specif­i­cally made for Marl­bor­ough sau­vi­gnon blanc, the re­gion is feel­ing quite pro­pri­etal about it. “Dur­ing the devel­op­ment of the glass there were work­shops held in other parts of the world, but we did host two of them,” said Wine Marl­bor­ough mar­ket­ing co-or­di­na­tor Harriet Wad­worth. “We like to think we were the lead­ing sphere of in­flu­ence.”
