Hand picked fruit sourced from Margaret River. Barrel fermented in French oak barriques – 85% second use oak blended with a 15% new oak component – the latter added to complement the weight and structure of the generous fruit.
The wine displays a typical buttery nose with the palate well rounded with attractive stone fruit flavours being beautifully balanced with subtle oak nuances.
This outstanding wine is best served only slightly chilled.
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!’
