Eagle's Cliff - Arendskloof - Pinot Noir Rose 2020
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 Noir Rosé is unique as in the bouquet and palate. First you are hit with fields of roses and freshly cut ripe cantaloupe with a sweet hint of maraschino cherries and raspberries. On the palate you get fresh strawberries and raspberries with a hint of cantaloupe rind and essence of rose.
Pairing: This is a great easy drinking Rosé, best enjoyed while sitting on a southern style porch with the cool wind blowing. Think Scarlet O’Hara in Gone with the Wind. Soft creamy cheeses, soft blue cheeses and a nice Irish cheddar would pair nicely with this wine.
Format/ABV: 750 ml/14.5
