Tempus Two Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Tempus Two Hunter Valley Wine

The Pewter range embodies the Tempus Two spirit to create a unique and distinctive range of wines. All the varieties are sourced from single regions in Australia’s premier wine growing areas and the end result is magnificent, luxurious, artisan wine developed with love and care. Distinctive bottles, stamped pewter labels and crisp clean styling reflect the sophistication and confidence of the wines.

Tempus Two Hunter Valley Wine

Tempus Two Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 is the colour of liberation in the glass with strong deep purple hues. Powerful, definite and beautifully balanced.

Cassis, plum, liquorice with hints of fresh tobacco, spearmint and spice on the nose which hint toward a concentrated fruit-driven wine with flavours of blackcurrant and mint, a balanced mid-palate and a tannin structure that yields to dusty elegance, providing great length and persistence to the finish.

The grapes were harvested from Tempus Two’s low cropping vineyards in Coonawarra, South Australia, crushed and chilled onto a ‘must’ tanker and transported to the Hunter Valley for vinification. Maturation occurred in new and seasoned French oak barriques for 15-months. This wine displays both the true varietal and individual vineyard characters we have come to expect. A concentrated and powerful wine with a fine, elegant tannin structure, which gives this cabernet the capability to age for decades whilst being approachable in its youth.

Try with peppered steak, slow braised lamb, bitey parmigiano reggiano or dark dark chocolate. This wine is drinking nicely now but will benefit from aging for up to 10 years.
