2005 Tempus Two Zinfandel

Tempus Two

This evening we uncorked a fine Zinfandel from Hunter winery Tempus Two.  This variety, sourced from a vineyard out at Orange displayed an excellent bouquet, sweet on the nose.

The wine had traces of chocolate and spices, with a brilliant and perhaps a smokey aftertaste perhaps caused by a hint of cloves.

Our wine was paired to a delicious meal of roast lamb with mixed vegetables – the perfect antidote for a cold winter’s evening with great company.

We followed this revelation with a drop of Canberra Region’s Lark Hill and their always pleasing 2010 Auslese Riesling.  This dessert wine was a real treat in concert with a few scoops of passionfruit sorbet.
