On occasion, I’ll take a wine I like and put it away in a “special box” for a few years to see how it will age … below you will read happened to those wines. On the other hand, there are wines that get “lost” in my wine cellar with nary a review ever written - some have turned into golden Treasures, others supreme Trash and then there are those that fall somewhere in-between (Tolerable). We’ll look at those here too. (New wines are being added all the time so keep coming back):
(Re-Tasted May 2013) ...It has not been long since my last tasting of this wine, in fact it's only been 3 months since I popped the cork on the last bottle of the Dolimite Riesling (circa 2006) ... The minerality is still quite good on both the nose and palate, there's a hint of petrol on the nose and palate as well but it's more prominent on the nose; the palate takes on more of a dried lemon-lime characteristic with slight green apple nuances especially on the finish. You'll also find touches of dried apricot and peach along with good acidity. The wine is still holding up quite well and makes for a great evening sipper as aperitif.
