Eagle's Cliff - Breede River Valley - Pinot Grigio

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: As your nose hits the glass the bountiful aromas of sweet apricots and candied lemon peel bloom with a hint of white pepper and wet stone to round out the nose enticing you to taste. The flavors that dance over your tongue are hints of Meyer lemons, fresh peaches and a minerality that subtly rises above the fruit to balance out the wine.

Pairing: This wine is best on a hot summer’s day by the beach either by itself or paired with various cheeses from pungent salty blue cheese to smoked gouda. Raw oysters, steamed clam and mussels with a garlic white wine sauce will go well this wine.
