Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by their affable excellence, sound structure and pristine, penetrating varietal fruit...

Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s. Yielding excruciatingly small harvests of the most characterful fruit, these wizzened old veterans deliver small batch vintages which are evocative of the old world classics from Cotes du Rhone. The enduring Wirra Wirra were established 1894, their eclectic range belies the splendour of small parcels which are separately handled and bottled for exclusive release. The Absconder draws fruit from vines planted a century ago, it merits a breathing and decant, an articulation about the sublime excellence of old vine Australian Grenache...

A super rich blend of the highest quality Champagne grapes 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. Aged for five years in its own bottle on the initial sediment lees before disgorgement. It then enjoys a doseage of 11-12g/L liqueur, whereupon it is resealed under it's final cork and aged for a further six months.
A lustrous amber yellow colour with an effervescence that is vibrant and smooth, and borders on cream. An exuberant bouquet revealing aromas of ripe fruits lightly steeped in alcohol (blackcurrant, cherries in eau-de-vie), together with toasty and wooded notes. A disarmingly refined wine with a bead like a parfait, a well bodied palate and a long powerful finish.
