Description

"Attractively fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows dark plum, cranberry, vanilla and hazelnut characters, followed by a smooth palate that is fruity and supple. The wine offers youthful fruit flavours together with subtle spicy nuances, finishing lingering and succulent. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2018

This full bodied wine blends plum and chocolate with cigar box characters in a complex but smooth blend. Aromas of plum, mulberry, hints of chocolate with cigar-box characters. A full-bodied, voluptuous wine with fine tannins and ripe, berry fruit flavours balanced by earthiness and spice. Subtle oak characters give complexity and enhance the rich, yet smooth and typically merlot palate. This wine can be enjoyed now and will cellar over the next 3-5 years.

Sourced from premium vineyards in the Limestone Coast, renowned for producing distinctive varietal characters of ripe mulberries, plums and other savoury fruits, grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness with the perfect sugar, acid and flavour balance. This rich and flavoursome wine was matured in both French and American barriques for 10-months to capture and enhance the complexity of this variety.

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.

Food Pairing: Try this with veal saltimbocca or beef stroganoff.
