Overview: Eagle’s Cliff Wine Cellar has existed since 1882 and is situated in the beautiful Breede River Valley. The company New Cape Wines was founded in 2000 by owner and winemaker, Christiaan Groenewald, who lives and works on the estate with his two sons. Christiaan Groenewald is one of only five winemakers to have received the prestigious Diners Club Winemaker of the Year award, twice!
The Estate’s premium wines are marketed under the Arendskloof label, whilst the primary estate wines are marketed under the Eagle’s Cliff label. Arendskloof bottles display the word ‘Voetspore’ on the front. This literally translates to “footprints”. The Groenewald family are so passionate about sustainability that Christiaan says when he leaves his vineyard one day all he wants left behind are his footprints.
Tasting Notes:On the nose the fruit hits you with dark plums, blackcurrants, blackberries and red delicious apples combined with cinnamon and cloves with a hint of forest floor. As bold as the wine is, it hits the palate differently with jammy notes of plums, blackberries and red currants with hints of roasted tomatoes and baking spices.
Pairing: This wine will pair well with filet magnon, rib eyes, short ribs and a good quality burger, all done medium rare. Smoked meat and barbequed meats will pair nicely with the wine too
