New world wines are those made outside the traditionally used grape growing regions in Europe – bringing in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, South Africa and USA. What makes the wine style different is that the vines are usually grown in hotter climes making for a riper grape which of course impacts on taste, making them generally more full bodied, big on flavour and a little more alcoholic! Bold flavours need a glass match and Dartington’s New World range of finest lead crystal glassware has long elegant stems and large, generous bowls to allow the flavours to mingle, develop and basically show off. Try something like the very popular Great White, Big Red or Mighty Rose!
Here you will also find a range of Dartington’s Crystal Tankards ideal for serving your drink of choice in. A tankard is a Cylinder cup or vessel with one handle traditionally used for beer drinking. Early designs were wood, metal (pewter or lead) or clay however latterly more commonly seen in glass. They have a distinctive, tub like shape and some of the earliest designs date from the 1300’s. They are today principally used for beer drinking however they could also be used for the lager and cider drinkers amongst you. One particular design is the Real Ale Tankard - real ale was a phrase coined by Campaign For Real Ale and means ale produced using only traditional methods and ingredients, matured in cask and served out of cask in pubs. Torrington and Falstaff Tankards are also used for beers and ales. Any beer, ale, lager or cider drinker will confirm that the type of drinking glass does make a difference to its contents so no self respecting appreciator of fine beers and ales would consider using anything less. Perfect as a gift from and to those who appreciate the fine art and skill of brewing and for Dads, Granddads and friends for whom we have quite honestly run out of present ideas! A pleasure to own.
