Paul Cluver Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Paul Cluver Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Ref: A131116

Robert Park Wine Advocate May 2017

"The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is blended with 10% Semillon and is matured in used oak. it has a clean and fresh bouquet with apple blossom and kiwi fruit aromas, subtle at first but unfolding nicely with time. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, a nice phenolic note on the entry with white peach and green apple toward the vivacious finish. This is a worth follow up to the 2015. 2017-2023."

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

This wine can be enjoyed with salads, seafood or on its own. Only the best quality grapes in three different blocks of Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are used for making the Paul Cluver Sauvignon Blanc.

Paul Cluver Wines are the result of a close-knit family who are dedicated to the holistic production of fine handcrafted wines. Guided by Dr Paul Clüver, Neurosurgeon, Apple farmer and chairman of Capespan and Vinfruco, the companies whose visionary and pioneering spirit created the foundation for Paul Cluver Wines.

Paul Clüver’s vision for the family run business is-“To combine the tremendous diversity of mesoclimates and soil of our farm and the passion of our family to develop great and distinctive wines.”

This vision is ably carried by G.M. Paul Clüver junior, and Winemaker Andries Burger, married to one of the Clüver daughters Inge. Andries qualified in viticulture and oenology at Stellenbosch University. Andries Burger’s winegrowing credo is focused on expressing the Elgin Terroir through handcrafted individual wines with fruit intensity, balance and elegance. Dr Clüver’s wife Songvei and daughter Karin are deeply involved with the nurturing and upliftment of the De Rust farming community.

La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
“La Gitana” is an absolutely classic example of this unique wine; it is beautifully balanced, fresh and delicate with a “touche” of sea-saltiness and a pure, nutty-fruit zestiness.

Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
