Dignified bouquet with fresh pineapple and rose flowers creates a symphony ready to melt in the mouth. The palate is full of overripe cavaillon melon and lush with honeysuckle. Caramel and apricot flavors make this luscious BA enticing and very drinkable. It's backed by a lively structure and the fruit takes on a dried quality by the finish. Ready to drink today or 50 years from now!
Pairings: Indulgent cuisine like foie gras and paté, strong hard and blue cheeses like Gruyere, Roquefort and aged Gouda, lush desserts or stand

The Barth estate is located in famous Hattenheim in Germany's Rheingau wine region. The Rheingau is one of world's smallest and finest wine-growing regions and perhaps it can be viewed as a small natural wonder, due to its remarkable location along the banks of the Rhine River.
Weingut Barth overlooks the Rhine and was founded in 1948 and is run to day by senior winemaker Norbert Barth and his son-in-law Mark Barth.

The global reputation of the German white wine community has its roots in the Rheingau, home to both the wine-making estate of Schloss Johannisberg and the village of Hochheim. Both names have been adapted around the world as synonyms for Riesling (such as Johannisberg Riesling and Hock).
The Rheingau is one of the most geographically specific wine regions on the planet with the Rhine (Rhein) River running on the south side and the Taunus mountains along the north. It is an area best known for its small viticultural sites, amazing landscape and perfect microclimate for the delicate Riesling and Pinot Noir grape varietals.
