Riesling, Paul Cluver
A new blend from Paul Cluver, sitting between their Dry and Close Encounters which are no longer produced.
The colour is pale, with a green apple tint. The nose shows fresh green apple, apple blossom, beeswax and fynbos honey notes, while the palate is crisp and clean – lemon sorbet-like. There is a great interplay between the naturally retained residual sugar and the acidity. The mineral core, which is linked to the shale rich soils in which the vines grow, gives the wine structure and a lingering after taste.
