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.
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.

One question for you. Is the wine actually called a TBA Eiswein? I didn't know such a wine classification existed.
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,
