- Robert Parkers WINW ADVOCATE (Neal Martin): "Paul Cluver remains one of my favorite 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 retained the consistency that I have found in recent years."

 - Robert Parker:  ?Paul Cluver is doing everything right. (?) They would rate in my top 10 not only in S. A. but in the world. If you want to know how good South African whites can be, then look no further than Paul Cluver."

Notizen des Weinguts: Currently there are 13.7 hectares planted to Chardonnay on the estate, which equates to 18.2% of the total plantings. Clones include 76, 95 175, 270, 548 and 1066. The first vines were planted in 1987 and the youngest blocks in 2016. Vines range in age from 1 to 30 years. The soil is predominantly decomposed Bokkeveld Shale with underlying clay layers of varying depths. Vine orientation is East/West on the South east facing slopes and North/South on the South- South West facing slopes. Height above sea level ranges from 280 to 350 meters. After a dry winter the summer leading to the 2016 harvest will be remembers as one of the driest in the Western Cape, it was also the earliest harvest we experience here at Paul Cluver Wines. We started harvesting Chardonnay the 16th of February and finished the 11th of March. Fortunately, do we experience very cool night temperatures in Elgin, this helped the grapes retain freshness. The wine remained on the lees for a total of nine months without any Sulphur addition. Only 15% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation, all without inoculation, further ensuring freshness and acidity. After tasting and blending trials, the wine was assembled from the best barrels, stabilised and prepared for bottling. This wine was 100% wild fermented in a selection of French oak barrels. (20% new, the rest 2nd; 3rd and 4th fill.) Lees stirring was done to a much lesser degree than previous years to retain freshness. Fish, poultry, pork and game bird dishes work well with this wine. It works particularly well with creamy pastas and salmon dishes. Tasting Notes: Lots of buttered toast / brioche on the nose with some citrus aspects too. Tangerine fruit and citrus blossom fragrances are apparent, with hints of vanilla pod and almond flakes. These characteristics follow through onto the palate. The fine, fresh acidity is natural, and adds poise and focus to the wine.
