Paul Cluver Wines

 

Paul Cluver Estate is a 4th generation family business, which has been farming in the Elgin Valley for more than 120 years (since 1896).  They are often cited as the pioneers of Elgin, who helped promote it to a premium wine growing region for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular. 

Elgin has historically been a prime apple-growing area - and this cool terroir with its extended ripening period and considerable diurnal temperature range gives wines with superb natural acidity and complex flavours.  Dr Paul Cluver Snr, a neurosurgeon, was one of the first wine pioneers here in the 1980s.  Today they own 75 hectares of vines, as well as apple and pear orchards and a Hereford stud.

Paul Cluver Estate is probably best known for its white wines - and we will be sampling two whites, Sauvignon Blanc & Chardonnay at the tasting.  More recently they have made great progress with Pinot Noir - and we will taste two Pinot Noirs (including their flagship Seven Flags).

Today four of the five Cluver siblings are involved in the business led by Paul Cluver Jnr - with his brother-in-law Andries Burger as Cellar Master.
