Paul Cluver Riesling

Stunningly well-priced off dry Riesling.

The Paul Cluver wine estate was established in 1986; the first winery located in South Africa's cool-climate region of Elgin. Recognised as pioneers of wine in the area, their focus is on producing elegant cuvées that are expressive of the terroir.

A refreshing Riesling that has an abundance of fresh fruit and blossom notes. The palate is clean with zesty lime notes, and there's a lick of residual sugar that adds texture and tames the powerful acidity. 

A great wine at a great price. Pairs beautifully with Gorgonzola.

Tivoli Wine Customer Reviews



Riesling is an aromatic white grape variety that is grown across the world and the wines are produced in a variety of styles. With its naturally high acidity and susceptibility to botrytis/noble rot, wines range from bone-dry to incredibly sweet.

The fruit flavours in the wine vary according to the level of ripeness in the grapes at the time of harvest. Just-ripe grapes produce wines with green apples and citrus, then the riper you go, the more stone fruit and tropical flavours you get. Besides fruit, you’ll often smell things like honeycomb, jasmine, or lime peel, along with a striking aroma that smells similar to petrol.

Germany is the world’s most important producer of Riesling, with exceptional examples from the Mosel, Rheingau and Pfalz regions. Rieslings from Alsace (France) are typically dry with pronounced aroma and flavour intensity. South Australia’s Eden Valley and Clare Valley produce dry Rieslings with notes of lime and petrol.
