2019 RS39 Navera Chenin-Blanc
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.
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
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!’
