More about Dornfelder

Description

Grape Type:

Dornfelder is a dark-skinned variety of grape of German origin used for red wine.[1] It was created by August Herold (1902–1973) at the grape breeding institute in Weinsberg in the Württemberg region in 1955. Herold crossed the grape varieties Helfensteiner and Heroldrebe to create Dornfelder. Dornfelder received varietal protection and was released for cultivation in 1979. It was named in honor of Immanuel August Ludwig Dornfeld. Dornfelder has a depth of color, good acidity and the ability to benefit from barrique aging. Higher-quality Dornfelder wines are velvety textured, slightly floral, often show flavours of plums, blackberries or cherries, and are typically oaked.
