Nice to be able to try a Gruner with 14 years of age on it.  It was still nice if a bit past prime but shows there is some staying power.  Light gold in color.  The nose has lost its fruit but there is still some minerality and a bit of fleshiness to it.  On the palate, the crisp acidity is still there but again, no fruit.  There is some depth and minerality.  Drink up if you have any or what the heck, let it go five more and see what happens.  Better with some cheeses.
