Gold color. Nice mature Riesling nose with honey, ripe tropical fruit and petrol. Full bodied and very balanced. Very long finish.

Left to air for 3 hours, this was a very nice reisling. The acidity developed, bringing beautiful citrus notes to truly sweet summer fruits. Too sweet for me to enjoy often, it was a welcome change from heavier French wines.

Great. Along with normal Riesling flavors, there's Lanolin, white flowers. Concentrated from age.

Pretty light yellow color in the glass.  Nose showed honied citrus peel and a tropical fruit element.  The palate had a gorgeous weightless peach presence that was so clearly defined it flashed me back to memories of eating peaches as a kid.  The acid and fruit made this wine feel so fresh even though it is 18 years old.  After some time open, this turned into, peaches, pears, and pineapple.  It was Fruit cocktail, finished with some citrus zest.  Just so enjoyable.  I wish I had more bottles to watch this develop even further.

Incense ash, honey, mineral bomb. Beautiful, sharp nectar of deliciousness. Lingering petrol notes fall to a luscious honeysuckle/apple midpalate.
