From elegant white producer Paul Cluver, this wine starts with a beautiful nose of fragrant peach, honey and apricot, then unfolds into an enticing balance of lush peach, pineapple and apricot flavors.

Medium-intense aromas of ripe pear and soft herbs transition into the mouth alongside developing flavors of apricot and clementine citrus. Medium weight with a good crispness and a clean but lingering finish. 5,400 cases imported.
From the cool-climate region of Elgon, the Cluver Pinot offers sweet berries and violet on the nose and an unfolding palate of red berry, coffee and chocolate. Restrained and ageable, the wine’s acidity gives it food-oriented character; pair with game or wild fish.
A bright and festive wine with a powerful nose of tropical fruit, lychee and rose and a touch of mineral. Lively in the mouth, with zippy acidity playing against a good dose of sweetness, the flavors pour on rose petal, lychee and spice, everything you could want from a Gewürz.
A magnetic nose of soft honey, flowers and pineapple gives this dessert wine a head start. Clean, crisp and intense flavors of honey and orange marmalade are lush but not heavy. The finish is long and pretty.
The sprightly allure of Elgin shows well here, with the wine’s fresh lemon/lime and mineral aromas, and the dancing quality of the grapefruit, apple and citrus on the tongue. Food friendly and light, the wine has a delicate quality that’s both sophisticated and easy drinking. Pair with sushi, salads and fresh seafood.
