2017 "Pink Sheep" Rosé (Schafer, Weingut)

Weingut Schäfer, "Pink Sheep" Rosé, Mettenheim, Rheinhessen, Germany 2017

Dornfelder, Portugieser, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

JUICY & REFRESHING. CHERRY, SAGE, LEMON

Schäfer is the German word for shepherd so it makes sense that the "Sheep" wines from Volker Schäfer are guided by him to be soft, mild and fun. This Pink Sheep, made from a Franco-Germanic blend of grapes grown in Volker's vineyard in Mettenheim, has individualistic character while still being a delicious, dry quaffer. This pink-wooled cutie just wants to have fun!

Serving Suggestions: Cocktail wine! Great to slug on its own, or with... dare we say it... medium rare lamb.

2016 "Red Sheep" Red Feinherb (Schafer, Weingut)

Weingut Schäfer, "Red Sheep" Rotwein Feinherb, Mettenheim, Rheinhessen, Germany 2016

40% Dornfelder, 40% Portugieser, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

PLUSH, SMOOTH & SOFT. LIGHTLY SWEET BERRIES.

"Schäfer" translates from German to "shepherd" in English, so it's only right that this wine is the ultra-rare red sheep. It is flocking delicious! It's wooly, wooly good. All puns aside, this is that rarest of combinations, the highly complex, but enjoyably soft, lightly sweet red. Made in miniscule quantities by Rheinhessen red wine specialist Volker Schäfer, it's especially at home with spicy, rich dishes. But drinking it on its own is also highly recommended.

Serving Suggestions: Lamb vindaloo. 3 alarm chili. Sauteed mushrooms in a sweet Marsala cream sauce.

Weingut Schäfer, Rheinhessen Red [1 liter], Mettenheim, Rheinhessen, Germany 2013

40% Dornfelder, 40% Portugieser, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

SMOOTH & DELICIOUS, BERRIES, LAVENDER & PEPPER

Volker Schäfer follows in the footsteps of his father Karl-Ludwig, who is a red wine enthusiast in a region much better known for its white wine. This was no deterrent, and today they are the leading red wine specialist in the Rheinhessen. This cuvee is their friendly, easy-drinking blend in a convenient one liter bottle, which is smart, because you'll reach the end of the bottle quite quickly!

Serving Suggestion: Beef tartar, which we have with this on every visit. It's also great with pizza, burgers, meatloaf, and evey roasted chicken.
