1989 Scloss Schonborn Riesling Rheingau Auslese

I brought this one to the blind tasting. It was easy for meVery beautiful orange amber color, of the highest intensity I have seen amongst whites. Crazy that this was once a white 0f platinum color. Will someone email me tomorrow to make sure I secure the last bottle to consume with some loved ones.
On the nose, sound, bouquet of med+ intensity, dried apricots, apple, orange peel, vinyl, stone, slight gasoline, no oak, lots of slate and earth. On the palate, med-sweet, medium+ intensity, peach, apricot, apple, orange, vinyl beach-ball, med+ acidity, very balanced, and very long finish. This wine could stand up to the more spicy end of Asian cuisine, and would be insane with suckling pig.
