A classic Australian liqueur style is made from Swan Valley low-yielding old vine, dry grown Navera (a Muscat derivative), Pedro Ximenez (PX) and Frontignac (Brown Muscat). The components of this wine are aged for an average of ten years before careful selection and blending. The colour in the glass is a brilliant deep golden/amber with a slight khaki hue. The bouquet - a lift of ripe apricots, raisins and liqueured cumquats. The palate is rich, warm and luscious with a long lingering finish. To surprise and delight, try it also as a cocktail with plenty of ice and a small wedge of lime (squeeze out the juice first). Alc/Vol 19.00
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.
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. Alc/Vol 19.00
Deep plum coloured, with a distinctive fresh bouquet displaying a tinge of allspice, cherry, bittersweet chocolate and cola. Minimal dosage has beautifully balanced the soft, round and generous palate. A modern take on an Australian Classic, this wine is best served very cold. Alc/Vol 12.5% Drink now or cellar in the medium term. ‘This wine deserves rich food by it’s side, confit of duck (shredded) with marinated feta and rocket! Don’t forget the raspberry vinaigrette.’
A blend of premium Margaret River Semillon (70%) and Sauvignon Blanc (30%). The wine is bright and inviting with the Semillon contributing a citrus balance and generous mouthfeel to the punchy bouquet of tropical fruits, fresh cut crass and herbal notes of the Sauvignon Blanc component. A happy union to be enjoyed while young and fresh. Alc/Vol 12.5% Enjoy in the short term ‘For many years we have served a pea & pecorino dip with local crab meat dressed with crème fraîche, it’s always perfect with our SSB.’
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!’
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!’
