This Cabernet Merlot blend is sourced f rom the Limestone Coast . Both the merlot and the cabernet sauvignon reached perfect physiological ripeness when harvested. The fruit wascrushed, cooled and given 48-hours of cold-soaking prior to warm fermentation, pressing and blending. This rich and flavorsome blend was matured in both French and American barriques for ten months to capture and enhance the complexities of these two varieties.
Berry fruits, cassis, hints of chocolate and cigar -box characters.
A balanced and full -bodied wine exhibiting rich berry fruit, cassis, chocolate and cigarbox characters. The flavours linger complementing the fine tannins, and adding to the complexity of the overall smoothness of the wine.
- Pleasantly surprised! - Review by Pippa Chambers, BRISTOL
However, after never being totally satisfied with the normal range in most supermarkets, and with a 30th birthday coming up, I wanted to buy something special to have with a surprise meal. After enjoying many a great Australian tipple when living in Sydney in 2012 I thought I would try and search for one of mine and my partner's favourite varieties - The Tempus Two Cab Sav.
I was surprised to find it online and the fact that I didn't have to order a whole crate was ideal. I ordered two bottles and they quite literally came one or two days after (the wine made me forget exactly but I just remember it was as super speedy delivery!
Having worked at a cider farm in my youth, packaging glass bottles up for delivery, I know only too well how many can be returned, so although my package had arrived, my next worry was a battered box, scuffed label or even worse - a leak!.However, the package arrived in top condition, each bottle individually and safely wrapped in an inflatable and very durable wine wrap. Needless to say I was super impressed with my first online wine order, I will be spreading the word and I will be back to order more!
Thanks for making it all so easy!
