Eagle's Cliff - Arendskloof - Petit Sirah

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: The bouquet of this beautiful Petit Sirah hits you with blackberries, spicy black plums and juicy blackcurrants and blueberries, combined with a hint of baking spices and peppery notes. On the palate, notes of blueberry preserves emerge then fresh blackberries and black plums with a strong pepper finish.

Pairing: This wine would pair well from a medium rare filet mignon to a burger topped with blue cheese. The wine would also go well with a charcuterie board with soft and hard cheeses and spicy cured meats.
