Wine tasting note: 1990 Penfolds Botrytis Riesling/Traminer

1990 Penfolds Botrytis Riesling/Traminer

3rd Jun 1999 Australia Dessert White

Ochre/brown to ochre at rim, bright.
Opulent nose of toffee apples and that sticky, pink bubble-blowing stuff that came out of tubes in the eighties! (If anyone can name it I'd be grateful!)
Very full and intensely sweet. Thickly textured with fruity acidity and tangy, orange flavours that last through a long finish.
Gorgeous now, should last for years.
[I was advised that it had picked up a great deal of colour over the past few years, so you should probably just drink it now if you have some]
