This thing is STILL ALIVE!! Ok...maybe all downhill from here but still pretty good.
Dark golden color, perhaps some oxidation as cork was soaked through and some mold on top. Reserve nose, apple. On palate, green apples, pear, a lot of minerality, stony, , short+ finish but good persistence, and a hint of bitterness at the end. Nice and happy to have caught it here.

How many fourteen year old white table wines would still be alive? Congrats.

Not the best of vintages, but Loire Chenin is almost ageless. I've had 50 y/o versions that were still hanging on.

Shoot, I think WW's newest underwear is older than 50.... [img]http://220.127.116.11/ubb/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://18.104.22.168/ubb/eek.gif[/img]
I have quite a few Loires from the 80s resting in the cellar -- they'll hold.

I resent that snide jab. I made a substantial purchase from Woolworths when they were closing out. WW

That was right after the OK Corral shootout though.....
