Lamont’s Swan Valley is proud to announce and warmly welcomes the arrival of the 2019 Chardonnay. Made from grapes sourced from Margaret River’s Edinger Estate vineyard, initially barrel fermented and lees stirred in second use French barriques. Following completion of fermentation, the settled wine received a further five month barrel maturation prior to recent bottling. Although young, the wine is aromatic and generous. The subtle use of oak together with developed stone fruit flavours allow for a complete and satisfying wine.

A light yet mouth-filling gris with gentle green pear and citrus fruits aromas and fruits. Crisp acids provide a refreshing balance. Sourced from Pemberton fruit, this wine creates harmony among almost all white wine drinkers. We all seem to agree on the Gris!

Corin made this rare liqueur from dry grown, low yielding old vine Swan Valley Navera and Pedro Ximenez. Two barriques (small oak barrels) from the early eighties were deliberately left to age for a further twenty-five years prior to bottling. The result is an immensely complex fortified wine coloured with deep amber with golden hues with a nose of orange marzipan. The same characters are repeated on the palate which is enhanced further with toffee and treacle flavours. Developed, viscous and rare. Alc/Vol 19.00
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!’
The 2009 Swan Valley growing season gave the opportunity to obtain perfectly raisined Verdelho grapes, producing this unique varietal style.

The generous palate overflows with burnt toffee and treacle finishing with a slightly savoury note which perfectly balances the caramel sweetness. Alc/Vol 19.00
