In 2016, I was given several cases of bottles of various 2015 Falkenstein wines that had been opened before I received them. The corks were put back in the bottle and they sat in cases in the hallway of my apartment. I finished the last bottles about four months after I received them and noticed no deterioration in quality. Additionally, I have kept bottles of various vintages that were half finished (mostly auslese and spatlese) in the fridge for a month with similar "results". Unfortunately, all of these were 2015 or later as that was my first vintage.

I think they are quite ageworthy, but hard to age as I have never found one to be less than delicious.

While it hasn't received as much attention as some of the other 2019's, the Ober Schaferhaus is also worth seeking out. It's the most exciting trocken Falkenstein wine that I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. I've killed 10 bottles out of a case thus far, although some of them have been gifted to friends.
I reloaded on the 2019 Ober Schaferhaus after trying it. Very good!
