Dornfelder is the third most grown varietal in Germany and is one of the best-known red wines to represent the country.
This wine is full-bodied with plenty of tannin and the colour is in dark red with a touch of purple and violet reflexes under the sun light if you look closely. Full density as well as rich on flavour is the character of this one in the glass and in the mouth. Fine notes of blackberries and a touch of black cherries. Fruity, fine spicy; sometime with a hint of mint taste (light spearmint), with a subtle and elegant sweetness.
Shall be lightly cooled down to 8-10'C in summer to start & let it air for about half an hour. It matches well with Pizza, pasta, Curry Lamb, dark meat, venison meat,, pasta…etc. or drink it alone. On the other hand; It would be a bad idea to have this or any red wine to go with Cantonese steamed fish.
