Estate Riesling 2018, Paul Cluver Wines

£14.40 per bottle

About this wine

The Paul Cluver Estate Riesling has an expressive nose with fresh green apple and citrus blossom notes. The palate is delicate with elegantly clean with zesty lime notes.  There is a great interplay between the naturally retained residual sugar and acidity.  Generally regarded as restrained, it displays typical Riesling ‘nervousness’.  The mineral core, which 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.

A great partner with Gorgonzola and roasted sweet potato salad with honey dressing. Pan fried prawns with paprika, toasted sesame and yoghurt dressing and roast pork chops with pomegranate and coriander salsa.

So many dimensions possible, so true to its terroir and capable of producing wines through the full spectrum of sweetness, from steely dry to richly exotic. With notably high natural acidity Riesling has a firm backbone for extended ageing. Never married to oak, it is all about citrus notes, orange blossom, lime, lemon and conference pear. With time in bottle, tell-tale notes of kerosene start to appear on the nose."
