A very respectable showing for a 20 year old Austrian Riesling.  This was about $25 on release and over the years, I have consumed a bunch - all good as it matured.  It now has a deep golden color, clear and bright.  The nose has slight petrol, a bit of burnt honey and nice minerality.  On the palate, slight pineapple and apricots.  This is dry.  Good finish.  This is drinking nicely.  Mature, but no hurry.  It should easily go another decade though it won't improve.  It will work well with cheeses or even Thai food.
