Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lightly floral before cinnamon and oak intermingle with peach, stone fruit, citrus, tropical fruit, and honey aromas. Crisp and fresh on the palate with pleasing acidity, mild texture, and a long and generous finish showing hints of minerality alongside the fruits and barrel accents. The minerality and oak get the bulk of the finish, but every element shows one way or another. A top notch Chardonnay with the acidity to cut through creamy pasta sauces, and the weight to take on salmon or pork.
From the Elgin wine region, Paul Cluver 2017 estate Chardonnay is so fragrant with tropical fruit, honey and cream aromas on the nose. Silky smooth, rich and mouth filling on the palate from barrel fermentation. Just a gorgeous South African Chardonnay. Awarded Silver at the 2018 International Wine Challenge. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
