Selecting a wine from an exceptional vintage that she can enjoy in years to come is another nice touch.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two 2018 Uno Hunter Valley Shiraz – the Uno series represents the very best of Hunter Valley winemaking. The shiraz grapes were grown in red volcanic soil in one of the region’s oldest vineyards. This wine will benefit from careful cellaring for 10-15 years.
  • Tempus Two 2018 Pewter Cabernet Sauvignon – with premium grapes sourced from a single vineyard in Coonawarra, South Australia, this wine has delicious blackcurrant and dark chocolate notes that this cool climate is renowned for. Even better, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 10 years.

This mum is all about broadening her horizons when it comes to travel, food and wine. She is inspired by different cultures and cuisines, and she loves to try lesser-known varietals of wine. For the mum who is genuinely excited about the prospect of trying something new, tantalise her tastebuds with a delicious bottle of one of Tempus Two’s emerging varietals, or go beyond tradition and present her with a bottle of Tempus Two Gin made from grape wine spirits.

We recommend:



If your mum prefers a classic G&T over a glass of wine, you're in luck! At Tempus Two, we've gone beyond our winemaking traditions and crafted a range of unique gins using grape wine spirits. This means we’ve got gift options for the gin-loving mum as well.

We recommend:

  • Tempus Two Wild Botanical Gin – a gin-enthusiast's delight, our Wild Botanical Gin is rich with juniper, carefully balanced with native Australian botanicals including desert lime, orange peel, salt bush and wattle seed. We love it served in a classic gin and tonic or a negroni.
  • Tempus Two Copper Shiraz Gin – made from 100% Shiraz wine spirit and distilled with juniper berries, coriander, orange peel and Shiraz grapes. Best served with tonic water and a wedge of blood orange, but also fantastic in these simple cocktails.
  • Tempus Two Copper Prosecco Gin – the world’s first gin to be made from 100% Prosecco wine. Gentle on the palate with typical Prosecco flavours of apple, melon, pear, citrus and a hint of stonefruit, this gin is carried along with floral notes of juniper and rosebuds. To enjoy its fine, delicate notes, try it served in these cocktail recipes.

Show your mum how much you love her with the perfect bottle that matches her vibe.
