Sourced from our own vineyard in Western Australia's Swan Valley. This wine is medium bodied, the nose and palate reflecting the sunshine of the Swan Valley with sweet berry fruit characters. The warm and arid climate has produced a sleek and silky wine which has been matured for an 8 month period in seasoned French oak. Alc/Vol 14.5% Drink now or cellar in the medium term.
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
A distinctive Tawny Port Style made from predominately Shiraz with a small portion of Cabernet Sauvignon both sourced from the Swan Valley. A vibrant Tawny colour. On the nose, aromas of exquisite marzipan, toffee and ripe plum. Developed fruit cake characters follow on the palate which finishes with persistent drying tannins. Deep and memorable. Alc/Vol 19.00
A unique blush Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Lamont’s own Swan Valley ‘back block’ vineyard. Light red berry fruits with a subtle hint of biscuit, it’s full flavoured with a satisfying dry finish. Delightfully different. Alc/Vol 12.5 Enjoy in the short to medium term ‘Picking at a bowl of pistachios, or simple shaved ham on well-buttered sourdough, makes this dinner party starter a real winner.
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
