A unique blush Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Lamont’s own Swan Valley ‘back block’ vineyard. Light red berry fruits with a subtle hint of biscuit, it’s full flavoured with a satisfying dry finish. Delightfully different. Alc/Vol 12.5 Enjoy in the short to medium term ‘Picking at a bowl of pistachios, or simple shaved ham on well-buttered sourdough, makes this dinner party starter a real winner.
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
Crafted from Swan Valley Shiraz (40%), Merlot (40%) and Malbec (20%). With the increasing popularity of rose among Aussie drinkers, this off-dry style’s delicate blush of pink/bronze colour impresses the eye with strawberry, cream and red liquorice flavours filling the palate. Crisp cleansing acidity provides perfect balance to the sweetness. Light unbridled fun in a bottle, this wine might surprise you! Alc/Vol 12% Enjoy in the short term ‘Need to start the bbq? Our bunyip is the absolute crowd pleaser at events when you’re not sure what the guests like to eat or drink. Works a treat with chorizo or your favourite sausage.’
A very concentrated style of fortified red wine. The Swan Valley Shiraz in this wine is from very old, non irrigated, low yielding vines and is hand picked when extremely ripe and raisined. The resulting wine is aged in barrels for many years and is then blended with much older reserve material. A portion of Jack Mann’s original *solera concentrated over several decades is included in this blend (2%). The bulk of the solera is Corin’s own from the eighties and nineties. An extremely rich, complex fortified wine exhibiting characters of dark chocolate, coffee, liquorice, raisin and some earthier savoury notes. This bottling is the entire solera and therefore will never be repeated. Alc/Vol 19.00
100% Pemberton Pinot Noir, the 2018 vintage is the latest addition to the ‘Monster’ premium range of Lamont’s Wines. Minimally fined and filtered, the wine exhibits jewel-like translucency, aromas of spice and red fruits with savoury overtones. The wines light bright appearance belies a generous depth of flavour on the palate. Flavours of plush red fruits from strawberries to cherries combine with earthy characters of mushroom and truffle. A beautiful balance of fragrant fruit, fine tannins and subtle oak. Alc/vol 14% Drink now or cellar in the medium term. ‘Recently we served a flatbread with marinated mushrooms, gruyère, thyme and a hint of truffle oil at an event and although simple, it worked matching with both sweet and savoury overtones of this pinot.’
A heady lift of lychee, spiced floral aromas on the bouquet lead to a weighty medium-sweet palate of luscious cumquat and marmaladelike fruits. As the name suggests, thirty-nine grams of residual sugar left in the finished wine produce the perfect aromatic partner for strong cheeses and Asian-spiced dishes. An adventurous wine for adventurous people. Alc/Vol 13.6% Enjoy in the short term ‘In summer make sure you over chill! Find your favourite cheese and add some seasonal fruits, sprinkle some toasted cashews and enjoy!’
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 favours 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. Alc/Vol 19.00 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
