A multi-vintage blend of mostly 2018 and some 2017, this is a fine, fruity and extremely likable second wine from Opus. It has good construction on the palate with blackcurrants, Morello cherries and soft wood spicing with concentration and drive. The aromas and flavours open and evolve after a few minutes in the glass giving succulent sweet cherry and blueberry notes alongside some savoury olive and ash elements. Overture comprises roughly 10-15% of the total Opus production. First released 1993 and was, until 2014, primarily sold via cellar door. More than 50 lots are vinified separately then blended and aged for 17 months in French oak, 50% new.

In 1993, Opus One continued the tradition of prestigious Bordeaux estates by introducing their second wine, Overture. Each acre of the vineyard is carefully tended to with unwavering dedication, resulting in Opus One's exceptional quality. This meticulousness extends to the blending process, where only the finest lots are chosen. However, when these select lots are given extra time in the barrel and the opportunity to blend across multiple vintages, the result is a wine of extraordinary sophistication and depth. Overture boasts a lively garnet hue and enticing aromas of freshly picked red fruit. Bright cherry and red currant flavors shine through with hints of earthy notes like cocoa, cedar, and vanilla. Extended barrel aging gives this wine a refined texture, highlighted by smooth tannins and a velvety finish.

Bordeaux Red Blend

Bordeaux red blends, hailing from the Bordeaux region in France, artfully combine grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec to create wines celebrated for their balanced profiles, marrying the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the fruitiness of Merlot. Known for aging potential, these wines evolve, gaining complexity and softer tannins over time, and their styles range from elegant to full-bodied, influenced by grape proportions and specific terroirs within Bordeaux sub-regions.
