Volume: 750 mlThis Dornfelder wine from Dr Zenzen produced in the Rheinhessen wine region of Germany is becoming a favourite with our customers.
So what variety is Dornfelder? This variety was bred in Germany in the 1950s. Its heritage include the varieties Pinot Noir, Schiava Grossa, Blaufankisch and Blauer Portugieser. Although it is a relatively new variety it has rapidly become popular in Germany and more recently in Switzerland. Only a few wineries in Australia have this variety as it is a cold weather grape, so they are either in the alpine regions or in Tasmania. It seems that this variety could fill a niche as a smooth drinking red wine alternative to pinot noir in cooler wine regions.
