The 2014 Two Oceans Pinot Noir is a wonderfully versatile red wine that can be enjoyed all year round, even when the summer heat is at its peak. The juicy, mouth-watering texture of the wine is a treat with seafood, especially seared tuna, duck, pasta and even berry desserts when served chilled.
The grapes were sourced from a range of vineyards in the Western Cape where the presence of gentle sea breezes and plenty of warm sun helped to create well-structured and flavourful grapes.
Known for being colour-shy the grapes for this Pinot noir was fermented and pumped over quite regularly to aid colour extraction before being pressed and matured for six months in French oak.
Gorgeously cherry-red in colour, this medium-bodied wine bursts with strawberry and cherry fruitiness with subtle oak and spice.
The 2014 Two Oceans Pinot Noir is available from liquor outlets and supermarkets nation-wide for about R38.
