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

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!’
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
