Tasting notes:
'The Cluvers have reduced the number of Rieslings they produce, alas, but this medium-dry style is still a wonderful expression of the variety, with a hint of wood influence, 18 grams of sugar, sappy acidity and blackcurrant leaf aromas. Drink 2018-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 93/100

'Hits the spot between former Close & Dry Encounter bottlings. Clean-cut 2017 alluring blossom fragrance, racy acidity deftly underpinned by gentle sweetness & steely minerality. Small oaked portion plumps out light body.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'One of the finest expressions of Riesling in South Africa. The cool Elgin climate emphasises the full steeliness of the grape’s acidity, using it as a frame to hang layers of pure white peach and citrus fruit, intense lime cordial and a lovely long, balanced, green-apple finish with just the faintest hint of residual sweetness. Drinking Window 2019 - 2024.' – Decanter, 92/100

Alc: 10.8% | RS: 18.4 g/L | TA: 8.1 g/L | PH: 2.99

About Paul Cluver:
Pioneering in spirit, no family has been more influential than the Cluvers in establishing Elgin as one of SA’s finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir regions. The family pursues sustainable agriculture and farming practices, for which they have been awarded international recognition. They are also a socially responsible business and have founded two schools and an empowerment project. Located in the unique Elgin region, and nestled in an inland mountain plateau, the estate forms part of the UNESCO Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve which was established in 1998.
