An utterly classic Hunter Valley Semillon, with low alcohol, other-worldly intensity and a palate built to last decades, this top tier has been kept back in the winery cellar by Tempus Two and released now, with 12 years of ageing.

In other words, they've done the cellaring for you!

And what an exceptional wine it is too. Made from the Blackberry Vineyard in the heart of the Hunter Valley, this formidable wine has a massive bag of show medals to its name - including a trophy and 4 gold medals - and is in the prime of its life.

As you can imagine with a backstory like that, this sits at the absolute top tier of Hunter Semillon... and is priced accordingly. That means $65 a bottle at the cellar door.

But hey, you won't pay that. Not today. Not at The Wine Collective.

Who made it?

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. Our approach is simple: the best regions, the best varieties. We 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. Tempus Two was founded in 1997 by one of Australia’s most iconic and revered wine families, the McGuigans, whose winemaking history dates back four generations to 1869. McGuigan Wines is a force in the international wine world, recently being crowned International Winemaker of the Year at the 2016 International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) in London. In Australia, Tempus Two is synonymous with style, reflected in the brand’s labels and bottles. Tempus Two wines are developed with passion and sophistication. The wines showcase familiar and new varietals in contemporary, eye catching packaging. Today, the vision for Tempus Two remains: to create a unique and distinctive range of wines from Australia’s premier wine growing regions.

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
