Description

The bright, golden hue perfectly reflects the aromas evident on the nose. These include apricot tart tatin, dried mangoes and pineapples, with hints of cinnamon, honeysuckle and peach blossom. On the palate, there is a citrus freshness that is Clementine-like. The clean finish makes it a highly pleasant after dinner drink.



Independents Note

:Daily Telegraph November 2009. Jonathan Ray includes the Noble late harvest in "10 of the best South African wines". "I've long been a fan of the estate's Pinot noir and their classy Gewurztraminer. This is a corker too" Tim Atkin rates the Noble late harvest as one of his top 12 sweet wines. The Observer; The Mail and Gaurdian. October/November 2009. "...lovely fruit flavours and remarkable complexity, elegance and palate length."



Currently there is only one block of Riesling i.e. Weisser Riesling on the estate. It covers 4.64 hectares, which equates to 5% of the total plantings of Paul Cluver Wines. The vines were planted in 1987, making them 22 years old for this vintage. The soil varies across the block and is composed of a 'ferricrete' top layer (surficial sand and gravel masses) on decomposed Bokkeveld Shale and/or light clay. Vine orientation is East/West on North west facing slopes with an average gradient of 1:7. Height above sea level is 280 to 300 meters.
