Dornfelder

Dornfelder, a relatively recent German hybrid, has rapidly become a beloved red grape variety due to its deep color and versatility.

Varietal Origin: Dornfelder was created in Germany in the mid-20th century through controlled crossings. It is a hybrid of two lesser-known German grape varieties, Helfensteiner and Heroldrebe. Despite its hybrid origins, Dornfelder has gained recognition for its quality and distinct characteristics.

Taste Profile: Wines crafted from Dornfelder grapes often exhibit a dark, intense color and a rich profile. Aromas of dark berries, such as blackberries and cherries, are common, and some expressions might also offer hints of spices and chocolate. The wines typically have a medium to full body, moderate acidity, and soft tannins, creating a harmonious and accessible palate.

Regional Styles: Dornfelder is most associated with Germany, particularly in regions like the Pfalz, Rheinhessen, and Baden. It has become known for producing both varietal red wines and as a blending component, adding color and depth to cuvées. The grape's adaptability to different soil types and its ability to achieve optimal ripeness even in cooler climates contribute to its popularity among German winemakers.
