More about this wine
It is always a shame when a vintage reaches the end of its life and this 2006 is pretty much there.
Do not write it off however, as there is still a lot to get from this wine.
This is a good example of how maturity can alter a grape beyond easy recognition and it is not a simple task to recognise the Riesling grape here. Nevertheless, this is a very pleasant wine. The nose is slightly oxidised but there is plenty of honey on the palate and a real patina of age.
You can get this wine at less than half price for the next week. After that what remains will be destroyed.
