About this Item

1997 Cape Vintage
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

Everything Overgaauw is true to their roots. Heritage is not just a concept; it is a soil, roots and fruit reality lived out daily on the century-old estate. The first Van Velden to make wine at Overgaauw was Abraham, who founded the farm in 1905 and built his wine cellar four years later. He laid a foundation far bigger than a wine business – his would be a legacy of pioneering spirit, respect for the land and a passion for excellence. It was a vision so full of heart that it passed as naturally as DNA from one Van Velden generation to the next, with the result that over 100 years later, Overgaauw can make the extraordinary claim of being a fourth-generation family wine farm.

Overgaauw Cape Vintage 1997 is a testament to the winery’s dedication to producing exceptional fortified wines. With its rich flavors, complex aromas, and excellent aging potential, this wine offers a rewarding experience for both immediate enjoyment and long-term cellaring.
