Dorfelder is the second most popular red grape grown in Germany. Loved by locals for its fragrant and rich reds, it has started to make some headway on the international market. This example comes from a family-owned estate in Pfalz that dates back to the 16th century. It has dark bramble and blackcurrant fruit with a twist of black pepper. It has medium weight on the palate, with plenty of structure and pleasing depth to the fruit. This is a great introduction to this wonderful grape!
