Two Older Riesling Spätlese

1993 Raunthaler Baiken Riesling Spätlese, Kloster Eberbach
A fine mature nose with notes of tangerines, rubber, linoleum and some dried up honey. Very good.
The taste is dry and somewhat linear with notes of orange peel, rubber and clay. A fine acidity. A tad short.

1990 Schlossböckelheimer Kupfergrube Riesling Spätlese, Staatlische Weinbaudomäne
A mature, semi dry nose with notes of almond paste, orange peel, rubber boots and hints of sherry. Very good.
The taste is grassy and dry with notes of dried peaches, hay, tangerines and gravel. Medium bodied and fine.
