We are absolutely thrilled to introduce the Number Series with the release of Nº 001 Haut-Plateau Riesling. This new tier in our portfolio will feature limited production wines that showcase the best of our research and development from any given vintage. The result: each number in the series will be unique, and may only be released once.
Nº 001 Haut-Plateau Riesling has been crafted from four specially designated rows of Alsatian-clone 49 from Block X1 on Margaret’s Bench. This fruit was left to hang on the vine until the very end of the season, before being harvested by hand on November 15, 2015. The result is a richly-styled wine modelled after Alsatian Grand Cru Riesling, with fermentation stopped at 31 grams per litre of residual sugar to achieve the wine’s ideal balance.
Nº 001 Haut-Plateau Riesling was rated 92 points by Rick VanSickle, who wrote:
“It has an intense nose of pear, lemon, river-rock minerality, lime zest and a hint of ginger. It’s rich, textured, almost creamy with laser-sharp acidity propelling the quince, citrus, minerals and wild honey notes on the palate. Impeccable balance, purity of fruit with crucial notes of zesty lime on the finish.”
