Wine tasting notes

The colour is clear and bright. The nose is fresh and clean with expressive flavour characteristics of tropical fruits. These flavours follow through onto the palate that also offers notes of grapefruit, gooseberries, and gives a lovely freshness which lingers after every sip. 90% Sauvignon Blanc.

Winery information

Paul Cluver Wines

The Cluver family have owned the De Rust farm since 1896, becoming the very first winery in Elgin in 1986. A cool climate winegrowing region, Elgin is most suited to aromatic varietals such as Riesling, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Winemaker Andries Burger lives and breathes his terroir, letting the quality of his fruit do the talking. Such gentle, subtly persuasive wines with fine minerality and poise are hard to come by, yet at Paul Cluver they are to be found in abundance.

Food matching

The ideal wine aperitif but best enjoyed with food. Refreshing summer time wine, it pairs well with salads and lighter meats. Paired with richer seafood and cheese platters make it work through autumn and winter.

Vinification notes

Cluver’s aim for their Sauvignon Blanc is elegance, balance and expression of terroir. Vintage conditions and the quality of the grapes dictate decisions made in the cellar – there are no fixed rules or recipes that are followed. Dry ice is used abundantly. Pressing is always gentle and free run juice only is fermented. Total time on fine lees was three months. The Semillon component was fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks, 3rd- and 4th-fill French oak barrels and a 2600L oak vat.
