A Jug of Wine, A Loaf of Bread and Thou

In November of 2007, Two Islands - a line of exciting and most affordable wines were introduced to a select audience of hospitality, tourism and the local media in Bali.

Named to reflect the close relationship enjoyed by "two islands" – Bali and Australia - the Chardonnay and Shiraz are indeed the product of these two 'island' locales. Grapes grown and in the cooler soils of Australia are rendered into juice before being shipped to Bali for fermentation, bottling and cellaring.

The creation of PT Arpan Bali Utama, the company that produces the successful range of Hatten Wines, made from Bali-grown grapes, the Two Island vintages aim to provide a consistent quality and affordable price in a pouring wine.

Two Islands Chardonnay

Two Islands Chardonnay possesses a lively fresh aroma, suggestive of peachy tropical fruit. This is a medium-bodied wine, displaying toasty melon flavors that present a complex lingering crisp finish. Fresh seafood, poultry and pastas compliment this consistently well-made Chardonnay.

Two Islands Shiraz

Two Islands Shiraz is a well-balanced medium to full-bodied wine. Toasty plum aromas compliment the spicy peppery flavors. The wine's soft tannins suit rich food such as veal, duck, lamb and Asian curries.

The Story of Hatten Wines

The pioneering first range Hatten Wines that are now a fixture in hotels and restaurants across Bali emphasized the harvesting and vintaging of grapes grown in Bali, using European grape varieties - Alphonse Lavellée, Belgia and a local grape variety. Suitable to Bali's year round tropical climate, these grapes are easily grown in a 120 day cycle.

But, as Chardonnay and Shiraz grapes must be grown in a cooler climate, Two Islands harvests South Australian grapes followed by vintaging in Hatten's modern winery in Bali, using state-of-the-art technology under the careful eye of an expert wine maker. The results are a beautiful crisp Chardonnay and a delicious medium-bodied Shiraz.

Two Islands and the entire range of wines produced by Hatten Wines can be found at restaurants and hotels across Bali or at the Hatten Shop near Simpang Siur in Kuta.
