Gunter Shlink Organic Dornfelder

Schlink Haus Riesling


  • Produced from estate vineyards in Nahe, Germany.
  • 100% certified organic.

Varietal Composition: 100% Dornfelder

Elaboration:  Vineyard soil is loamy, sandy and slaty. The age of the vines are 3-30 years. The grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation over 8 weeks in stainless steel tanks. The approximate lifespan is 5 years.

Tasting Notes: A Dornfelder with a deep red color, very soft tannins and flavors of ripe cherries make this wine to a very pleasant and easy-drinking red wine. Violet candy and sandalwood perfume sweet-tart blackberries and plums in this ripe, ruddy red wine. It’s slightly sweet and candied but balanced pertly by fresh acidity and darker notes of sage and rosemary.



Since 1885 the Schlink Family has produced wines from the Nahe. For Generations the family has bottled their wines in the iconic cobalt blue bottle. Schlink Haus was the first commercial blue bottle created and imported in the USA. The winery today still believes in producing quality wines and keeping their family tradition alive. Located between Mosel and Rhein, Nahe is one of the smaller German wine regions with an extraordinary range of soil types. The entire rock cycle of igneous (volcanic), sedimentary (sandstone, clay, limestone) and metamorphic (slate) rocks are present in the Nahe.

Today they are an estate winery with 60 ha of vineyards planted and lead by the 5th generation of winemaking, with Michael Schlink carrying the torch for the family.
