On the 19th of February, Paul Cluver launched their Riesling Noble Late Harvest 2017 vintage at a media lunch at Auslese in Cape Town. Cellarmaster, Andries Burger only releases this Noble Late Harvest (NLH) when he is satisfied that it is of the highest standard and quality. This vintage is the first to be released in three years.
The team also introduced their new Riesling 2017, an exciting new style for the estate. Currently their portfolio includes three styles of Riesling wines: dry, off dry and dessert wine. As of the 2017 vintage, they will offer two styles, the Riesling and Noble Late Harvest. The change gives Andries the platform and focus to create an elegant style of Riesling with the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity.
