Paul Cluver Gewurztraminer

Paul Cluver Gewurztraminer

Ref: A133216

Robert Parker Wine Advocate May 2017

"The 2016 Gewurztraminer comes frm vines planted back as far as 1987. it has a composed and pure bouquet that expresses the variety with style: lychee, white peach and hints of tinned apricot flowing from the glass. The palate is well balanced with orange sorbet and mango notes on the entry, the 10 grams per liter of residual sugar making this very seductive and easygoing, although the acidity keeps everything in balance. Drink over the next 4-5 years. 2017-2027.

Paul Cluver remains one of my favourite producers not only in Elgin, but in South Africa, purveyors of some of the most scintillating Chardonnays that I have tasted. Andries Burger is certainly one of the most talented winemakers in the Cape and their recent releases retain the consistency that I have found in recent years. Readers should not overlook some of their other whites, such as the Riesling and the Gewurztraminer".

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.

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
