Theodorus Dornfelder Trocken Qualitatswein 2014, Germany
Top 50 Reds for Winter, The Times. Scents of liquorice interlaced with ripe cherry and violets lure you into a Pinot Noir-esque palate of ripe red fruits, plummy tannin and a mineral finish. A lot of oomph and character for such a light wine!
Pairs beautifully with: Grilled venison sausages, roast ham, cheese souffle or cured meats and a cheeseboard.
Cheese pairing: Basque sheep's cheese, mature cheddar or crumby Stilton.
