Based on the residual sugar level, it can be described as midway between German Kabinet and Spatlese in style. The colour is pale, with a beautiful green apple tint. The nose is quite expressive with flavours ranging from Granny Smith apple and lime, to citrus peel, with gentle floral tones. The palate is well balanced with great interplay between the naturally retained residual sugar and the acidity. Lovely luscious, creamy mouthfeel. Will age beautifully. 2010 John Platter Wine Guide - South Africa 4 stars

About Paul Cluver Close Encounter Riesling


IWSC Silver Outstanding 2016

Product: Paul Cluver Close Encounter Riesling 2015

Award: IWSC 2016 - Silver Outstanding

Tasting notes:
"Pale green/gold. Nose opens with inviting apple skin, lime leaf and typical Riesling turpene notes. Vibrant, fresh acidity in the mouth with green apple crunch and lime zest. A light sense of sugar gives roundness rather than sweetness. Great tension. Superbly balanced. Finishes clean, light and pure. Delightful now yet will develop with interest."
