Semillon Riverina New South Wales
She's such a special wine, that a distinctive hand blown bottle was designed just for her. Tempus Two is the definition of romance and desirability, elegance and finesse, all who have countenanced her endowments agree. She was a star right from inaugural vintage, after claiming gold medal and Best Sweet White at the prestigious Boutique Wines of Australia. An opulent elixir, layered with flavours of dried apricot and spice, rancio, honeycombs and marmalade, exquisitely aromatic, lingering on a seemingly endless finish.
Tempus Two is the culmination of Lisa McGuigan's dream to create a world class tourism experience within an ultra premium winemaking estate. Tempus Two have broken the tradition with their tantalizing editions of dessert wine, sealing the precious liquid within hand blown bottles of Italian glass, which have claimed conspicuous design awards. Botrytis Cinerea Noble Rot is a fungal infection which causes dehydration and concentration of juices within the infected grape. There was much debate at Tempus Two about which style to produce from the intensely sweet Griffith Semillon. Natural sugar levels were heightened and grapes harvested late to enhance the intense flavours. Alcohol 10.0%
Colour is a deep golden yellow. Aromas of preserved apricots and candied citrus marmalade with hints of wild honey. Powerfully rich and opulent displaying the quintessence of botrytis semillon. The flavours of dried apricots, citrus fruit marmalade and underlined by a subtle touch of wild honey. Tempus Two displays restrained acidity ending with a refreshing citrus lift, balanced by the concentration of flavours that give overall elegance and finesse.
