Lucaris ELEMENTS INSPIRATION
Drawing inspiration from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Astrology, Ayurveda as well as Western conceptions of the elements, we designed glass shapes that would bring out that “element” in any wine style. Each glass is multi-purpose and can be used for red, white, rosé and even sparkling wines.
WATER - BUOYING FRESHNESS
“Water” brings a refreshing quality to any wine, as this taller, narrower bowl keeps wine cool and aromas light and fresh. The waist helps retain delicate aromatic notes then gently aerates the wine as it is sipped, releasing those precious aromas.
FIRE - BOOSTING BOLDNESS
“Fire” helps wines exhibit vibrancy, intensity and boldness and the glass’ wide, gently undulating bowl creates a broad surface for releasing aromas, while the straight sides direct the wine to the middle of the tongue, maximising flavor while minimising bitterness.
AIR - HEIGHTENING AROMAS
“Air” represents the qualities of motion, energy and fragrance, so the Air glass is designed with a round but tapered bowl for easy swirling without overexposing the wine to air or heat. The narrow rim focuses aromas and brightens acidity.
EARTH - ENHANCING HARMONY
“Earth” exemplifies stability, firmness and mellowness, as the Earth glass’ rounded bowl softens individual aromas and textures, helping them meld in the mouth. The flared rim drops the wine on the front of the tongue, accentuating fruitiness and fullness and creating a sense of richness and harmony.
GOLD - AUGMENTING BRILLIANCE
“Gold” was specially designed to bring out the brilliance in sparkling and sweet wines. Its tall, flute-like shape helps conserve bubbles while the tulip shape and waist hold in delicate aromas. The straight-sided, narrow rim brightens acidity in sweet wines to keep them in balance.
