Weingut Jacob Hamm

Winkeler Jesuitengarten Cabinet Spätlese Riesling 1969

I got this old bottle at a #German #auction about 15 years ago and, on a whim, decided to serve it recently with a shrimp and avocado salad under a delicate, yet rather simple oil and vinegar dressing... the result was sublime as the nearly fifty-year-old bottle was uncannily fresh... a marvelous foil to the sharper, more savory dressing. Yes, it still had some residual sugar and that was a good thing as was the excellent core of ripe acidity that played a strong roll in the wine's remarkable balance--BRAVO! #1969 #JacobHamm #Winkeler #Jesuitengarten #Riesling #Cabinet #Spätlese — 4 years ago

Steinberger Spätlese Riesling 1953

COWABUNGA--1953 #Steinberger Spätlese #Cabinet is the BOMB--You'd never guess this wine was over 60 years old!!!
We all figured a wine from the '70s but no way it could be early '50s--OUTSTANDING!!!
