The Paul Cluver Weisser Riesling Noble Late Harvest 2003 made by cellarmaster Andries Burger was one of just eight wines from South Africa to win a  gold medal at the International Wine and Spirits Show in London this month.

Already crowned King of Wines in South Africa last year at the prestigious Juliet Cullinan Wine Connoisseur's Awards, it was also acknowledged by, a leading British online wine publication, as 'easily one of the finest in the New World.'  The 2003 vintage was awarded 5 stars in the 2004 John Platter, and won its category in the current Cullinan wine awards.

Says Paul Cluver: 'We are thrilled to receive a gold in London. It shows that the wines are displaying the signature of the Paul Cluver range
of wines: elegance, finesse, crispness and balance.'

The Clüver family garnered a second medal on the prestigious London show - a bronze medal for the 2002 Chardonnay.

This wine, says Paul Cluver, has floral and citrus flavours with toast and vanilla in the background. The wine has fantastic balance showing
harmony between fruit and wood.

Such acknowledgements come on top of the recent accolades given to the 2003 vintage of the Paul Cluver Sauvignon Blanc which was awarded four and a half stars by the prestigious Dutch wine magazine, Perswijn.
