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 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 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 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
