Riesling Spätlese is unique, because of its intensity of flavor. Spätlese is a late harvest, leaving the grapes time to concentrate the fruit and its flavors. This Spätlese has an amazing nose of orange blossom, crisp apple, and white peach, combined with tender minerality. It is characterized by an amazing balance between sugar and acidity. Powerful and intense, loaded with sweet citrus, this is a wine to be appreciated for its quality distinction.
Pairings: Starters, chicken, fresh fish, shellfish, veggies and light, spicy foods. Especially good with Thai, Indian, and Mexican dishes, as well as any ethnic, spice-influenced foods!
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.
