Peter Mertes Erden Dornfelder Trocken 2014, Mosel

A Dornfelder from the 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.

Good.

Match with  salami or darker game.
