TWO OCEANS STORY
Cape Point is one of the most extraordinary places on the planet. It is here at the southern tip of Africa, along the brooding, craggy coastline of the southern Cape, where two mighty but opposing oceans meet - the one cold, the other, warm. The impact is immense. It affects the climate, the coastline and areas inland, and the influence on the vineyards of the Western Cape is significant.
The Atlantic Ocean that flows along the west coast of Africa is fed by the icy Benguela current from the South Pole. The Indian Ocean is fed by the Agulhas current coming from the tropics. Their connection, amidst crashing waves and soaring spray, creates a unique set of conditions.
The Two Oceans vineyards are influenced by cooling sea breezes and mists that can lower summer afternoon temperatures to slow down ripening, ensure a refreshing acidity and intensify fruit flavours. The warm African sun, however, allows for sugar accumulation and flavour development. They work together to create beautifully balanced grapes that translate into lively, delicious and approachable wines. The whites are fresh, crisp and tangy, while the reds are soft, smooth and juicy.
Two Oceans takes its responsibility to the environment very seriously. All wines are made from IPW-accredited vines, farmed according to eco-sustainable principles. They also carry the fully traceable sustainability seal that guarantees production integrity every step of the way from the vineyards to the final pack, be it bottle or box.
Bottled wines are sold exclusively in light-weight, fully recyclable bottles.
