Tasting- Peter Mertes Sweet Red Dornfelder


Name: Peter Mertes Sweet Red Dornfelder

Variety: Dornfelder

Region: N/A

Country: Germany

Year: 2014

Price: $12

Winery Notes: The trademark German red grape varietal Dornfelder has a lovely purity of soft red berry fruit. Integrated soft tannins combined with forward fruit flavors make for a perfectly balanced everyday sipping wine.Great with grilled red meat, sausage and chicken. Best served slightly chilled.

My Notes: This wine had a soft nose and was very typical of reds in general. The wine was very sweet and bright with tannin, especially on the after-palate.

I did not have this with food.
