Paul Cluver Estate Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2010 90 Points
Clear, day bright, pale gold with green reflections.
Clean, medium plus intensity, unshowy aromatics, subtle, notes of fleshy, delicately ripe white nectarines, yellow lemon, hints of Golden Delicious apples, brush of ripe pears, flinty/quartz mineral, no oak, complex and layered.
Dry, medium plus integrated acidity, medium plus alcohol, broad and full texture, oily with mid palate stuffing, mineral complexity, so fresh, spicy white pepper, punchy white grapefruit note on back palate, forceful style, yet retained elegance overall.
Now until 2020, especially considering the longevity of past vintages.
