Sourced from our own vineyard in Western Australia's Swan Valley. This wine is medium bodied, the nose and palate reflecting the sunshine of the Swan Valley with sweet berry fruit characters. The warm and arid climate has produced a sleek and silky wine which has been matured for an 8 month period in seasoned French oak. Alc/Vol 14.5% Drink now or cellar in the medium term.
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
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! Alc/Vol 14.5% 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 COPE!’
Made as a special birthday present to Corin, this Beaujolais-style red is made from Cabernet Sauvignon with a small parcel of Tempranillo and Malbec. Light-bodied with a delicate tannin structure, the wine is fruit forward with blackberries blueberries and gentle spice. Often chilled during the summer months this deliciously versatile drop accompanies red meats hard cheeses as well as fish with substantial flair. Alc/Vol 14.5% Drink now or cellar in the short term. ‘The most loved & respected of our reds, this wine is enjoyed after work with antipasti, including a bold cheddar & warm baguette.’
A distinctive Tawny Port Style made from predominately Shiraz with a small portion of Cabernet Sauvignon both sourced from the Swan Valley. A vibrant Tawny colour. On the nose, aromas of exquisite marzipan, toffee and ripe plum. Developed fruit cake characters follow on the palate which finishes with persistent drying tannins. Deep and memorable. Alc/Vol 19.00
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
