Overgraauw Tria Corda 2015

Overgaauw Wine Estate in Stellenbosch was an early champion of a Bordeaux-style blend.


Overgaauw Wine Estate, Stellenbosch

Winemaking and Maturation

In 1979, a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cinsaut blend named Tria Corda was launched. Then in 1982, a more classic approach was taken by replacing the Cinsaut with Cabernet Franc. These 3 classic Bordeaux varietals have remained the components ever since. Tria Corda is a Latin translation for 3 hearts and refers to these 3 varietals that form the heart of the Overgaauw Wine Estate’s unique terroir.

Tasting Notes

Mint and beefy notes intertwine with plum and spice. Very long and special! Stand upright before serving (the longer the better), due to their age and sediment. Quite chunky rustic at first, it evolves to amazing depth and complexity! Don’t decant too long, rather allow the wines to change in a large Bordeaux glass over time.
