Established 1968 by Word War II flyer Egerton E.S Dennis, on ninety acres of McLaren Flat along the prestigious winegrowing terroirs at Kangarillla Road, the Dennis family pioneered the production of Mead alongside colleague and enthusiast John Maxwell. Dennis initially sold his harvests to some of Australia's most eminent brands before founding his own label in 1971,with the object of converting the high quality fruit into pure, estate made wines. Since establishment, Dennis Wines have collected hundreds of medals at national and international wine shows, twice claiming the revered Bushing King awards for best wine at the McLaren Vale Winemakers Exhibition. A quiet achiever of bespoke old vine Shiraz with a scanty production of 5000 dozen annually, be the one & only enthusiast on your block this week to own and savour the fruits of Peter Dennis at the scanty price..

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...

Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Semillon Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
For a wine that relies on lifted, zesty fruit notes as this one does, the final assembly sits very close to perfect. Ribbon Vale's fruit produces a different style to that grown at neighbouring Moss Wood. Sauvignon Blanc brings major aromaticness to the wine, the Semillon component contributes heightened flavour profiles. Ribbon Vale is vibrant and juicy, pristine and finer than most variants of the blend. Flavour builds in the glass before a finish that is refreshingly crisp with zippy acidity and an aftertaste that's long and fruitful, dry and lingering.

All fruit is hand picked, grapes are destemmed and chilled, pressings are kept separate and cold settled for two days. Juices are racked off lees and warmed to 18⁰C for inoculation with pure yeast culture. Batches are fermented to dryness, racked and adjusted for acidity and sulphur dioxide. Components are assembled and filled to a selection of 225 litres French oak barriques. After three months of age, the oaking adds palate richness and a measure of exciting minerality which beautifully frames the greener nature of Sauvignon Blanc. All parts are rack and returned into the finished wine at the end of October, bentonite fined for protein stability and sterile filtered before bottled.
Light to medium straw hue. Lifted fruit aromas of gooseberry, passionfruit, lychee, lemon sherbet and cheddar cheese - very bright and fresh. A palate of some impact, crisp acidity, juicy lemon, passionfruit and gooseberry flavours, showing full body and very clean finish, sans astringency. Great texture, long flavours, clean and fresh without any phenolics.
