2016 Dornfelder
PA - Lake Erie
Size: 750ml - Bottle

Can ship to addresses within PA, TX and select states only.

 

Available locally only at PIWC, this dry, medium-bodied red is a true hidden gem and has been highly awarded at competitions over the years. Our 2011 vintage was selected as one of Pennsylvania’s Top 10 Wines. This relatively new German variety, just over 30 years old, has displayed an unrivaled speed of expansion in the vineyard industry and grows wonderfully in our region. Our Dornfelder was aged in both French and American oak barrels, boasting hints of rich berries and aromatic spices. Ending in a pleasant dried-cherry and light tannin finish, this vintage can be enjoyed nicely on its own or paired with game and red meat cuts.
