Buy Paul Cluver Riesling Dry Encounter
The colour is pale, with a beautiful green apple tint. The nose shows ripe green apple, apple blossom, beeswax and fynbos honey notes. The palate is crisp and clean - lemon sorbet-like.There is a great interplay between the naturally retained residual sugar and the acidity.Generally regarded as restrained,it displays typical Riesling ‘nervousness’. The mineral core,wich is linked to the shale rich soils in which the vines grow,astounds. It is the reason for the wine structure and the lingering after taste.Perfect hot weather wine - very refreshing.

The family is supported by a team of people in production, administration and in the market place. Esme Klaaste processes orders locally and internationally. Rudi Zandberg is our viticulturist who looks after the vineyards. Leandre is receptionist and telephonist. Sharon looks after events. And our tastings centre is managed by Abigail, tasting centre times are Mondays to Fridays from 09:00-17:00; Saturdays from 10:00-14:00; Sundays from 10:00-14:00.
