'51% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc. Matured for 18 months in French oak, 60% new. The nose is super-complex: red and black berries, violets, herbs, undergrowth and vanilla while the palate is particularly harmonious – very flavourful, the tannins starting to mellow in pleasing fashion.' – Winemag Prescient Cape Bordeaux Red Blend Report 2021, Top 10 (95/100)

'Tria Corda is Overgaauw's flagship Bordeaux style red blend, combining Merlot with 49% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Given the wine's cellarworthy track record, it would be a shame to drink this now, such is its concentration. High toned, with compact tannins, layers of cassis and aromatic spices and stylish coffee bean oak. Drink 2023-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'This Tria Corda is a full-bodied Bordeaux-style blend of Merlot (51%), Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) and Cabernet Franc (14%). Its seductively perfumed nose offers generous layers of cassis, raspberry, cedar and a touch of spice. The nose follows through onto a silky, well-balanced palate that delivers fine tannins and a long, concentrated finish – the perfect foil for the wine’s brilliant fruit. Its complex structure and fruit vibrance will ensure at least 10 years ageing potential.' – David van Velden, 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.
