Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
Among the established estates on Stellenbosch Kloof Road, Overgaauw definitely deserves a visit. You can admire the pretty Victorian tasting room while exploring the range of big red wines. In 1982 Overgaauw was the first South African estate to make a merlot, but it also experiments with other varietals, and you should too. Try the Cape Vintage made with Portuguese varietals such as touriga, tintas, souzao, and cornifesto. Confused? Don't be. The result is a wonderful richly balanced blend. The Tria Corda sells out faster than it can be released. The spicy, fruity sylvaner is named for a grape of the same name. To date, Overgaauw is the only Cape estate to grow this varietal, which comes from the Alsace region of France, so it's definitely worth exploring.
