I recently opened a bottle of this wine in October 2012. The wine was 36 years old so my expectations were not so high. It was quite a surprise and proof to me that good German wine can last a long long time - as long as the best French. I let the wine breath for aprox 30 min before serving it. Then it had wonderful flavors of figs and apricots with a lingering taste of Acacia honey and gooseberry. We put the bottle away for the night after resealing it and proceeded to finish it the following night. Now the wine had developed more and taken on a distinctly rhuebarb and light honey flavor with a lingering taste of cold but smooth tea. All in all a delightful experience bearing in mind i had spend $12 for the bottle.
