4 /5

Paul Cluver is a concept with all its wines and is a master in mainly white wines such as Chardonnay (who knows the Seven Flags not), Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling and of course the beautiful almost burgundy-like Pinot Noir. This Riesling from the cool-climate (looks like a German or Austrian rieslng) is wonderful fresh Riesling. In the nose called the Encounter Cluver Dry Riesling beautiful tones of ripe green apple blossom and honey. In the mouth covered the ripe acids, light minerality and a nice balance in the finish.
