2012 Lamont’s VP
Perfect seasonal conditions allowed for a small selection of Lamont’s back
block Shiraz to be made into this fortified style which is aged in the bottle
rather than in oak.
Inky purple/black in appearance, with liquorice, spice aniseed and coffee on
the bouquet. Sumptuous flavours of intense plum and fruit cake fill the palate
up to the satisfying traditional dry finish. Maturing nicely at the moment, the
wine can be enjoyed now but will continue to develop complexity for the next
ten to fifteen years.
Drink now or cellar in the long term
’Our fortifieds have been made to sip & savour! However by grabbing your favourite
chocolate, cake, dessert or cheese these wines can be enjoyed and act as a buffer to the
“opening” of another table wine that could possibly put you in the hurt locker tomorrow!
Please enjoy.’ – Corin Kate & Fiona
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!’
