Eagle's Cliff - Arendskloof - Pinot Grigio 2018
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: This Pinot Grigio expresses a fuller body on the nose with fresh cut hay, honey, lemons and lime notes with hints of creamy yogurt. The flavors that coat the tongue are fresh apricots, lemons with a hint of lime zest and a white pepper finish.
Pairing: This wine is a sipping wine meant to be savored with the subtle flavors that arise on the palate. Food pairings would be great with a homemade pasta with a garlic lemon butter sauce, fresh oysters, seafood and white fish.
Format/ABV: 750 ml/12.5
