Crafted from Swan Valley Shiraz (40%), Merlot (40%) and Malbec (20%). With the increasing popularity of rose among Aussie drinkers, this off-dry style’s delicate blush of pink/bronze colour impresses the eye with strawberry, cream and red liquorice flavours filling the palate. Crisp cleansing acidity provides perfect balance to the sweetness. Light unbridled fun in a bottle, this wine might surprise you! Alc/Vol 12% Enjoy in the short term ‘Need to start the bbq? Our bunyip is the absolute crowd pleaser at events when you’re not sure what the guests like to eat or drink. Works a treat with chorizo or your favourite sausage.’
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 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!’
Intense deep black/burgundy in colour with a distinctive magenta rim. Displaying fragrant violet and dark jube aromatics, Lamont’s signature red is made from single vineyard Donnybrook fruit. A deliciously deep brooding Malbec with cool black fruits, dark chocolate, liquorice and a mouth-filling richness. A persistent finish completes the seamless wine which has the ability to age into a more savoury beast! Alc/Vol 14.5% Drink now or cellar in the long term. ‘Have a monster meal of roasted & braised lamb shanks with rosemary & roasted duck fat potatoes! Don’t hold back! Do it! THE MONSTER WILL COPE!’
Lamont’s Swan Valley is proud to announce and warmly welcomes the arrival of the 2019 Chardonnay. Made from grapes sourced from Margaret River’s Edinger Estate vineyard, initially barrel fermented and lees stirred in second use French barriques. Following completion of fermentation, the settled wine received a further five month barrel maturation prior to recent bottling. Although young, the wine is aromatic and generous. The subtle use of oak together with developed stone fruit flavours allow for a complete and satisfying wine. Join with Scott from Lamont’s in relishing the return of a cellar door favourite! $35/bottle, $378/doz
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 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
