The Overstone wines are based on the classical varieties including Merlot and Cabernet Franc from Bordeaux, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Burgundy as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Crafted using traditional techniques, these European style wines are elegant, complex and mouthfilling. They are food friendly and approachable when young, but offer excellent cellaring potential.
