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 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!’
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.’
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
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
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.’
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
