Pioneers of single-vineyard Riesling Sekt, Barth love all things sparkling. Following the traditional method, these Sekt masters have spent years honing their craft and are closely involved in the VDP Sekt Statute.

The Hassel Riesling Brut Nature VDP.Grosse Lage belongs in the top league of the already rare single-vineyard sparkling wines in Germany. Riesling vines grow in the Grand Cru location (also VDP.Grosse Lage) Hassel, one of the best vineyards in the Rheingau. Loess loam soil, a southern aspect, and moderate steepness enrich this sparkling wine with a unique character. The base wines are 100 percent matured in large wood barrels. The sparkling wine, prepared using traditional bottle fermentation, then lies on the lees for 60 months until it is hand-riddled and disgorged.

A stone fruit potpourri from ripe peaches to apricot jam vibrates between nose and palate. In addition, nutty notes, the fine strength of black tea, and some lees notes make this a very expressive bubbly.

With its fruit, strength, and intensity, it pairs perfectly with grilled tuna or also slightly bitter flavors found in asparagus or artichokes. It also matches spicy Asian food.
