Dornfelder Trocken, Sander

£10.99

A grape variety that was almost unknown in the UK until recently but which is now beginning to crop up in the more trendy and adventurous wine bars and restaurant wine lists. It’s one of the new wave of dark-skinned German varieties producing wines like this with good colour, and more depth of flavour. On the nose and on the palate there are cherry and plum notes integrated with some spice. Time in oak barrels has given it a complex, velvety aspect and a satisfying finish. A medium-bodied red to be enjoyed with lightly grilled dishes, light stews and young cheeses

Stefan Sander

Stefan Sander worked in vineyards around the world before settling back into the family estate. His grandfather brought organic viticulture to the vineyards (and winery) in the 50s after noticing how his wife’s MS condition improved after he stopped using chemical fertilisers and started gardening organically. Stefan has now moved towards biodynamics. His wines are clean and expressive, perfect for ‘German doubters’.
Vineyard size 25 hectares. Organic since 1982.
