36 Year Old Wine!

Yesterday I opened a 1982 magnum of Landskroon Pinot Noir.  The cork was soft and soaked, so I was prepared to throw the wine away, but decided to taste it first.  It had gone quite brown, but I was amazed to find it quite drinkable, and very smooth, with little acid and no tannins.  I decanted it for about 6 hours and then had three glasses.  It was amazing that It had lasted so well and I look forward to finishing it over the next few days!  It still had the original price tag on it for R13,50!!
