Description

"It is beautifully ripe and fragrant on the nose showing dark plum, sweet raspberry, vanilla, mixed spice and cedar characters. The palate delivers youthful fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, well supported by lovely mid palate weight and smooth texture. Friendly and delectable. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2018

Experience delicate aromas of berry and mint with subtle oak influences. An intense blackcurrant on the palate with red berry fruit flavours complemented by subtle oak characters. 

The fruit for this wine was harvested and selected from vineyards in the Riverland, Limestone Coast and Langhorne Creek regions in South Australia. The grape were crushed and de-stemmed to varying sizes and styles where the fruit was fermented on oak at cooler temperatures. This allows the fruit flavours to be nutured and enables retention of varietal characteristics. Post fermentation the majority of the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks and the remaining is transferred onto French and American oak. The Tempus Two Varietal series Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied wine with generous length and a persistent, smooth finish. 

The varietal series is designed to add a touch of style to any occasion. Approachable fruit-driven flavours with a structured palate and balanced acidity crafted for everyday drinking. Sourced from vineyards within South Australia, this modern and contemporary wine is rich, vibrant and smooth. 

Backed by four generations of winemaking heritage, Tempus Two is a cutting-edge Australian winery that does things ‘just a little bit differently’. From its spiritual home in the Hunter Valley, Australia’s oldest wine region, Tempus Two sources fruit from Australia’s premium vineyard regions to craft wines with both substance and style. Their approach is simple: the best regions, the best varieties. They pay homage to classic Australian varieties and styles by growing vines in unique Australian regions like Hunter Valley, Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek and the Adelaide Hills.
