Eagle's Cliff - Breede River Valley - Shiraz Rose

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 color of the rose is a deep pink and you want to dip your nose into the glass and find notes of watermelons, cantalopes and persimmons and a hint of rose petals and pepper. On the palate you get fresh strawberries and raspberries. The tart cherry and a dust of pepper finish lingers on the tongue making you want another taste.

Pairing: This rosé has character so much so, that the food pairings can range from mild Indian curry, fish with a delicate cream sauce and buttered scallops to a tuna tartare or tuna steak.
