Just a question on when to try this sort of wine, David.
Do you usually open a Spatlese at this young age? If so, is it just for assessment purposes or do you like drinking them that young?
I have some 2007 and 2006 Spatlese I haven't even thought of broaching yet, although it is probably time to assess a bottle. Just curious as I know many people drink German wines with little or no aging.
BTW, you'd appreciate this - was rustling through the cellar last weekend and found a bottle of 1976 Beerenauslese I'd forgotten I had! Now to find a time to open it!
Guess I could open it when Jenise beats me at bocce, but I fear it might go over the hill before that happens....
