NV Liqueur Shiraz
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.
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!’
