Nº 001 Haut-Plateau Riesling
"A remarkable wine..."
95 POINTS | JOHN SCHREINER
Four rows of Alsatian clone 49 from Block X1 on Margaret’s Bench
The fruit was left to hang on the vine until the very end of the 2015 growing season, before being harvested by hand on November 15th. The result is a richly-styled wine modelled after Alsatian Grand Cru Riesling, with fermentation arrested at 31 grams per litre of residual sugar to achieve the wine’s ideal balance.
Opulent and perfumed, the Haut-Plateau Riesling has intense aromas of ripe orchard fruit, buckwheat honey, and white violets. The rich, generous palate is balanced by riveting acidity, with expressive minerality and flavours of peach blossom and candied lemon. Layered and long-lasting, the wine finishes with purity and elegance.
