Peter Mertes Erden Dornfelder Trocken 2014, Mosel
Think of Germany's Mosel Valley and racy, slatey Rieslings spring to mind. Red Mosels are rather more unusual and all the more interesting for it.
I can count on the fingers of one hand the Dornfelders I have had - this is by far the best.
Ripe, black cherry fruit, oaky spice and excellent underpinnings; fresh and savoury with fine tannins.
Match with salami or darker game.
