The Indian and Atlantic oceans converge off the Southern Coast of Africa and this creates a great climate for grapes to be grown. Two Oceans wines are named after these two oceans. The impact of their convergence is profound as it affects the climate and inlands which create a special set of conditions, making for a significant positive influence on the vineyards there. Vineyards are farmed taking the principles of eco-sustainability into consideration and the Two Oceans wines carry the traceable sustainability seal that ensures product integrity from the vineyards to the final pack. This brand is exported to over one hundred countries around the world and is the leading South African wine brand in Canada and Sweden.
Two Oceans Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is a easy drinking wine, and it has a bright ruby red color, offering the value for money and consistent quality that the Two Oceans brand is known for. On the nose, it is lavished with scents of cherry, ripe berry fruit, and oak spice. On the palate, it is soft with flavors of berry fruits and a hint of oak is detected.
After vineyard blocks are vinified separately, the juice is fermented at 24°C to 26°C. For the extraction of flavor and color, the juice is left on the skins for up to five days.
Food pairing suggestions: The Two Oceans Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot goes well with red meat dishes like grilled meat, roast lamb, stews, carpaccio, and pasta dishes.
Red wine when taken in limited quantities is beneficial as it is also high in antioxidants to keep your heart healthy. The resveratrol which is found in the skin of grapes helps to regulate blood sugar and aids in retaining the sharpness of the memory. Resveratrol can help to keep your weight in check as it helps with the reduction of fat cells in the body and red wine helps in lowering bad cholesterol.
