‘A wine that has benefited hugely from what David van Velden calls his "leaf roll eradication programme", this is a dense, perfumed, structured Merlot made with a French and an Italian clone. Plum, cassis and dark chocolate flavours are framed by 20% new oak and underpinned by acidity and polished tannins. 2024-32’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2022, 93/100

‘It’s a well-structured, medium-bodied wine with a rich combination of sumptuous black cherry fruit, hints of cocoa powder and elegant spicy oak notes.’ – Winemaker

Producer information Abraham was the first van Velden to make wine at Overgaauw when he founded the farm in 1905 and built his wine cellar four years later. The Van Veldens are true Cape winemaking pioneers. David’s father, Braam, was a founding member of the Cape Winemakers Guild in 1984 and they were one of the first estates to produce a Bordeaux blend, make Merlot in SA and use 225ℓ Bordeaux barrels for élevage.
