Tempus Two is a cutting-edge Australian winery that does things just a little bit differently.
Their philosophy is to take the variety from the region it performs the best in; in this case Hunter Valley Semillon and Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc then blend them! The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc were obviously processed separately but both harvested at night to keep the grapes cool. They are then pressed immediately, the juice clarified and fermented with an aromatic strain of yeast. All of these processes ensure the pure aromas and flavours of these aromatic grape varieties are retained and consequently fully express themselves in the wine.
The Semillon provides texture, bringing subtle apple and citrus characters while the Sauvignon Blanc adds gooseberry and tropical notes. A fresh, clean, crisp wine with natural fruit sweetness and a zesty acidity giving great structure and balance.
Great with smoked salmon with capers and lemon or fresh goat cheese.
