Tempus Two Pewter Series Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 75cl
A powerful, definite and beautifully balanced wine with flavours of cassis, plum and liquorice combining with just a hint of fresh tobacco, spearmint and spice. This wine displays both the true varietal and vineyard characters that the famed Terra rossa soils of the Coonawarra in South Australia are renowned for. This is a concentrated and powerful wine with a fine, elegant tannin structure. It has benefited from aging in new and seasoned French oak barriques for 15 months.
Drinking nicely now, it will also benefit from aging for up to 10 years. This powerful, full bodied red is to be served with a peppered steak, slow braised lamb or even a rich blue cheese.
