Franz Karl Schmitt "Niersteiner Kranzberg" Riesling Auslese Christwein-Eiswein 1970 Rheinhessen Eiswein
Sweet Riesling from the single vineyard, Kranzberg, by the village of Nierstein in the Rheinhessen wine-region just south-west of Frankfurt; as an Eiswein (Icewine), the grapes were picked in the middle of winter during severly cold weather which freezes all but the natural sugars within the grapes.
Christwein is an additionally rare wine as it is made from grapes picked exclusively on Christmas eve. The grapes for this particular wine therefore picked on the 24th of December 1970.
Auslese is typically a medium-sweet style of German wine, made from late-harvested grapes.
