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 Weiss Clone (21), N° 005 offers a more medium-sweet or Süsser sweetness profile to contrast to that of Culmina’s iconically dry Decora.


"This wine is modelled on the great off-dry German Riesling..."

TASTING NOTE
Highly aromatic, the fifth release in our Number Series features a ‘fruit salad’ nose of white peach, ripe citrus, quince, and honeydew melon, alongside subtle notes of honeycomb, white daisy, and musk. Demi-sec in style, the Süsser Riesling balances bursting stonefruit and juicy ripe apple flavours with a generous mouthfeel and telltale fresh acidity.

FOOD PAIRING
Sweet-savoury Chèvre tartelette with new season vegetables, cut fruit, and chicken liver mousse; Vietnamese coconut broth with spicy caramel pork and fragrant herbs.
