1983 Rheingau

1983 Balthasar Ress Riesling Kabinett, Winkeler Jesuitengarten, QmP Rheingau

I've drunk this wine before. This being the last bottle I had, the plan was to drink it over the summer, maybe as part of a comprehensive look at '80's and early '90's reislings. But, this being my last weekend in Toronto...wine's meant for drinking right?

I love these old riesling. Golden in colour, with orange flecks at the rim, showing an incredibly focused bouquet of oily minerality, stewed apples, pears. Follows through on the palate, good sweetness, very harmonious, very balanced. Great length on the finish. I could drink these wines forever.
