This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1988 Hugel Riesling VT

1988 Hugel Riesling Vendage Tardive - drank at Yung Kee VIP Floor (蘭亭閣). Being a late-harvest wine, naturally it is a little on the sweet side. Classic nose of petrol, flint, acetone, marmalade and muscat grapes. Due to the age of the wine, there were lots of tartaric acid crystals that have formed as sediment at the bottom of the bottle. I had actually never seen so much crystal in one bottle, and visually it's a bit weird to see them in your glass.

Full post on dinner is here.
