Paul Cluver Estate Riesling, Elgin, South Africa, 2018
A new off dry blend from Paul Cluver, sitting between the Dry and Close Encounters which are no longer produced.
The colour is pale, with a green apple tint. The nose is expressive with fresh green apple and citrus blossom notes, while the palate is delicate with elegantly clean and zesty lime notes. There is a great interplay between the naturally retained residual sugar and acidity. The mineral core, which is linked to the shale rich soils in which the vines grow, gives the wine structure and a lingering aftertaste..
"The Cluvers have reduced their Riesling range in recent year, but this halbtrocken style with 19 grams of sugar and refreshing carbon dioxide is still one of the best in the Cape" 93/100 Tim Atkin MW
