Overgaauw Wine Estate in Stellenbosch was an early champion of a Bordeaux-style blend. 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.Quite a chunky rustic at first, it evolves to amazing depth and complexity! Mint and beefy notes intertwine with plum and spice. Very long and special! 94 – Roland Peens 2021Stand upright before serving (the longer the better), due to their age and sediment. Don’t decant too long, rather allow the wines to change in a large Bordeaux glass over time.
