We crafted this Clonal Series to showcase the valuable difference between clones and how those characteristics appear in the glass. Every year in the cellar, we keep clones, vineyards, blocks, everything separate during production. With the 2019 vintage, the clones from our Redside vineyard showed marked differences and expression. Ultimately, looking at wines through this lens is what we think is cool in the cellar, and we thought our members would like to explore it along with us and enjoy something unique.
A clone of Swiss origin, Wädenswil has more weight across the palate than either clones 115 and 777 in the series. Thick skins lend texture and structure, with more concentration upfront. As it opens, rhubarb compote, black raspberry, and black cherry notes sit beneath a garland of lilac and thyme flowers. Brisk acidity ebbs and flows against a backdrop of fine grained tannins.
The 2019 Clonal Series is only available to current Grand Cru Club and Legacy Members.
