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! Alc/Vol 13.5% Enjoy in the short term ‘This is the go-to anytime white, perfect with your favourite marinated roast chicken, and make sure you take the trouble to make garlic mash!’
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 flavours 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
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
An attractive light to medium weight blend of Tempranillo (35%), Mataro (35%) and Shiraz (25%), the fruit sourced from the Swan Valley. Winemaking notes A portion of fruit fermented with whole berries, thus accentuating the aromatic ripe fruit characters of the region. Following fermentation, the wine was matured for 6 months in seasoned French oak prior to the careful blending of the individual components. Wine tasting notes A fragrant fruit driven red wine with a delicate tannic structure. Youthful and vibrant with immediate freshness displaying aromas of rose petal on the nose; ripe cherries, strawberries and plums on the palate. Recommended to be served ever so slightly chilled for summertime drinking. 14.5% Alc
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 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.’
