Eagle's Cliff - Arendskloof - Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

About This Item

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 you get notes of smoke, earth and mushroom followed by blackcurrants, black plums, cherries and a hint of cinnamon. On the palate you get the burst of red fruits and a clove/cinnamon finish.

Pairing: The boldness of this wine commands food pairings such as fillet mignon or rib eye with truffle butter, short ribs and a good quality burger topped with stilton blue.
