Since 1780, the Windisch family has lived in the village of Mommenheim in the Rheinhessen region of Germany. Fritz Windisch was the first to start estate-bottling wine in the 1920s; now his son Guenter carries on the family tradition. As expected, Riesling is the star here, but the winery also produces win from a number of other grapes including this Dornfelder. The Dornfelder grape produces win far deeper in color than other German reds; in fact, it was initially developed (in 1955, in Wurttemberg) as a blending wine to improve the color of paler reds. Today it is prized on its own as a fragrant, full-bodied, complex wine with a fairly tannic structure, and you will find no better example of that than this version from Fritz Windisch.
