Nº 001 Haut-Plateau Riesling
The Nº 001 Haut-Plateau Riesling is the inaugural release in the Number Series, crafted from four specially designated rows of Alsatian-clone 49 from Block X1 on Margaret’s Bench. Left to hang on the vine until the very end of the season, the richly-styled wine is modelled after an Alsatian Grand Cru.
Nº 002 Wild Ferment Grüner Veltliner
The second in the Number Series, Culmina’s Nº 002 Wild Ferment Grüner Veltliner has been made using minimal winemaking inputs, employing only natural yeasts to start a nearly two month long fermentation.
Nº 003 En Coteaux Riesling
The third in the Number Series, Culmina’s Nº 003 En Coteaux Riesling is Culmina’s first ever single varietal release sourced from Stan’s Bench. Left to hang on the vine well into the Autumn, the wine has been modelled similar to the Nº 001 in an effort to highlight the distinct terroir differences between two of Culmina’s vineyard benches.
Nº 004 Stan’s Bench Chardonnay
The fourth in the Number Series, Culmina’s Nº 004 Stan’s Bench Chardonnay is Culmina’s first ever single varietal Chardonnay release from Culmina’s middle elevation vineyard, Stan’s Bench. Made using minimal winemaking inputs and undergoing 100% indigenous yeast fermentation, this wine was racked into neutral French oak barrels and left ‘malic’ as it aged for 9 months on lees before bottling.
Nº 005 Süsser Riesling
The fifth in the Number Series, Culmina’s N° 005 Süsser Riesling is Culmina’s first German-style Riesling, made from a portion of X2 on Margaret’s Bench. Produced entirely from the Weisse Clone (21), N° 005 offers a more medium-sweet or Süsser sweetness profile to contrast to that of Culmina’s iconically dry Decora.
