2009 Liqueur Verdelho
The 2009 Swan Valley growing season gave the opportunity to obtain
perfectly raisined Verdelho grapes, producing this unique varietal style.
The wine displays deep amber hues and luminous clarity with an intense
bouquet of raisins. The generous palate overflows with burnt
toffee and treacle finishing with a slightly savoury note which perfectly
balances the caramel sweetness.
100% fruit from Lamont’s 25 yr old ‘Back Block’ Swan Valley Shiraz vines. A vibrant dark plum colour with attractive oak induced spicy nose, the wine’s silky palate displays the richness of ripe sweet blackberries. A soft, elegant medium weight style with fine tannins and a satisfying length of flavour. Alc/Vol 14.5% Drink now or cellar in the medium term. ‘The ripe fruit along with the soft tannins in the shiraz works so well with so many dishes. A simple rogan josh with a fragrant rice will make the shiraz stand out and take notice! Don’t forget me!’
