About

95

"Grape growing on this Elgin apple farm dates back to the early 19th century, but the Paul Cluver brand was more recently established by the eponymous neurosurgeon in the 1990s and is now overseen by his son, also Paul, and winemaker Andries Burger. Chardonnay (with Pinot Noir and Riesling) is the focus here. This is only the "basic" Cluver Chardonnay, but it demonstrates the grape's potential in Elgin"

Product Description:

"Lots of buttered toast / brioche on the nose with some citrus aspects too.

Tangerine fruit and citrus blossom fragrances are apparent, with hints of vanilla pod and almond flakes. These characteristics follow through onto the palate.

The fine, fresh acidity is natural, and adds poise and focus to the wine."
