2016 Lamont’s Black Monster
Intense deep black/burgundy in colour with a distinctive magenta rim.
Displaying fragrant violet and dark jube aromatics, Lamont’s signature
red is made from single vineyard Donnybrook fruit. A deliciously deep
brooding Malbec with cool black fruits, dark chocolate, liquorice and a
mouth-filling richness. A persistent finish completes the seamless wine
which has the ability to age into a more savoury beast!
Drink now or cellar in the long term.
‘Have a monster meal of roasted & braised lamb shanks with rosemary &
roasted duck fat potatoes! Don’t hold back! Do it! THE MONSTER WILL
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!’
