About This Wine

Sorry, we just didn't have time to get much dirt on Rheinart. We do know they were big bottlers through this time - you see the bottles around. Note that until the 1980s, any Eiswein (which is to say a wine made from grapes naturally frozen on the vine) had to include the related Pradikat. The question was, essentially, were the grapes frozen at the Spatlese, Auslese or even Beerenauslese level? This wine, therefore, was at the Auslese level when the grapes were frozen; in other words, this is a powerful Eiswein. This bottle has a bright red wax top; you can see the cork which looks to be in good shape. The fill and color are very good. The label is ripped, but you can make out this is an Auslese-Eiswein. The vintage, 1966, is one of the most charming of the decade.
