Bought a bottle of '73 TBA Eiswein when on vacation this year, how was the season?
Original Post
It was the most abundant vintage ever up to that point. The wines lacked acidity and tended to be a little thin, as you might expect with a very abundant vintage. Broadbent gave it 2 out of 5 stars.
AHHHHHH!!! Son of a B#tc%, well I'll take the solice of having a wine from my birth year. Cheers and thanks!!

One question for you. Is the wine actually called a TBA Eiswein? I didn't know such a wine classification existed.
I thought the same thing when I saw it, my first one I ever saw, but thats whats on the bottle. I will type out the whole description when I get home. I think it is from Joseph Hofer.

Sounds like a contradiction. I think of TBAs as botrytised and Eisweins as either not or minimally botrytised.
Yes it is listing both and here it is. Under the 1973er on the neck there is a gold strip that says, Goldene Kammerpreismunze Weinpramlierung 1976 Landwirtschaftskammer Rheinland-Phalz. Then another strip that states, Grosser Preis DLG-Bundeswein-pramierung 1977 DeutscheLandwirtschafts-Geseilschaft. Then main label,
Winzenheimer Berg
Riesling
Qualitatswein mit Pradikat
TROCKENBEERENAUSLESE
EISWEIN
