This was cool to try at the winery.  The bottle had been open, but refrigerated for three days.  Still a vibrant green/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose has diesel as one might expect from a 16 year old Riesling, but also nice minerality and a hint of peach.  Full bodied.  A broad complexity on the palate.  Minerals and slight citrus.  Nice finish.  Although showing some age, for those who appreciate an aged Riesling, this is drinking well.  This would work well with a nice Mulligatawny soup.
