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).
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!’
