2004 Meulenhof Erdener Trepchen Riesling Spätlese
Thiese calls this #106 (but I can't find that number anywhere on the label). It's AP 13 05 and it has a goldkapsel.
Ohh fun stuff! Gorgeous aromas of tangerine, pear, peach and slate. Then it’s a lush, creamy mouthful of apple, pear, and minerals that finishes with stunning, lingering orange-flavored acidity. I’m going to have to bury these wines deeply in the cellar if I hope to see some age on them.

106 was likely the cask number. Not all producers use them, but some do.

As for the capsule, Meulenhof (I think) went to all gold capsules in 2003 or so, if not earlier.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

Thanks David. Where it came from or whatever the capsule, that wine is yummy.
