Paul Cluver's Sauvignon Blanc reveals itself in a clear, bright colour with a hint of green. Fresh and clear aromas of elderberries, gooseberries, passion fruit and blackcurrants. These aromas also develop on the palate, which has a nice creamy texture and minerality. Altogether a lively white wine, which can be classified stylistically between Loire and Marlborough.
Vinification for the Sauvignon Blanc by Paul Cluver
Short cold maceration to extract aromas and reduce acidity. Fermentation of the "free run" (a part of the Sémillon grapes is fermented in used wooden barrels). Vinification on fine yeast for 5 months.
Food recommendation for the Sauvignon Blanc by Paul Cluver
We recommend it as an aperitif and accompaniment to salads and light meat dishes in summer as well as to hearty fish and cheese dishes in autumn and winter.
