Dear Winelover,You have a more than 40 years ( now 78 years ) old wine in your cellar.Please store this wine, if anyhow possible, in a cool room with constant temperature.When you open the bottle, think about the age of this wine.Think back and remember how you were 75-78 years ago, if you were born already.Wine is lively and changes continously, just like human beeings.Enjoy the wonderful deep golden colour, the intensiv elegant nose and the rich ripeeness on the palete .Maybe this wine can help to remember situations and peaple you came acros in the past 78 years. Not the finest younger Trockenbeerenauslese could ever take you onto this memory lane so far back.This is a great value on ist own, which is in this bottle.According to modern winelaws this wine would have been an Auslese quality.In 1970 we put new corks in the original old bottle, so please be careful as 1970 is also a long time ago . Please be careful when you open the bottle.The wine is already many years old and also will not change its taste and flavours rapidly. It certainly will last for a few more years. Imprtant is the right opportunity.Like yourself, it will not get younger, it matures.Be proud and happy to own such a rare tresure
Ifo:At he time this grapes were harvested, it was most commen to have Riesling ad Silvaner vines mixed in one vineyard.The writing used on the front and back of the brochure is an old german writing ( Sutterlin ), which is for most Germany now very hard to read.My father, who died in 1979 has also signedthis label, apart from my brother and myself.
