elegant, lively & delicately balanced
Pewter is our regal wine series, delivering a premium experience that embodies all that Tempus Two has to offer. 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 profiled in our Pewter Series.
The long forgotten region for Chardonnay, the Hunter Valley, has yet again produced an outstanding vintage. After re-launching the Pewter Chardonnay in 2013 to critical acclaim, 2014 sees the continuation of this single vineyard gem.
Sourced solely from the Hermitage Road vineyard of Hunter Ridge, the Chardonnay was fermented in 100% new French oak barrels with a diverse selection of cultivated yeast and the vineyard’s indigenous yeast. Lees stirred monthly for 5 months, the wine was then lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
The Tempus Two Pewter Series Chardonnay is a cellar door exclusive.
Flavours of citrus, melon and tropical fruits, the palate is vibrant and rich, showing tight acidity and a creamy texture.
Flinty melon and white peach; with hints of toasty spice from the oak ageing.
This wine is drinking beautifully in its youth but will easily see cellaring time of up to 7 years.
