Albert Mann 1997 Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg

Last night I had my last bottle of the above, which was a great advert for the longevity of Riesling.  Not a particularly good vintage and not a super-heavyweight producer (though very decent), but at over 12 years old the wine was still delicious.  OK, it could have been drunk a couple of years ago, but it still had the classic aged-Riesling smell of petrol and honey, with the palette being crisp, classy, somewhat complex and the perfect foil for my BBQ'd prawns marinaded in ginger, garlic, lime and chilli.  Yum.
