2009 Georg Albrecht Schneider Dornfelder

SKU #1135751

This comes from Weingut Albrecht Schneider, run by the same family for seven generations. This comes from the red shale soils of the Rheinhessen and is entirely Dornfelder, a hybrid grape created in 1955 that produces full-bodied, fruit-forward reds. The Baltimore Sun describes the 2009 as such: "If you have any doubts about global warming, here's evidence of its existence: a fully ripe, delicious red wine from up north in Germany...This wine is simply delicious – not heavy but full of intense cherry and wild berry flavor. It's comparable in style to a medium-bodied Burgundy, with a nice touch of earthiness."

- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
