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...

Seppeltsfield draw inspiration from the traditional Spanish and Portuguese Solero method of aging wines, an ancient system which delivers high quality and style consistency by blending younger barrels into old. After utilising only the very first cut of free run juice and fortification with a neutral spirit, DP116 Aged Flor is matured for an average age of sixteen years. The evolving layers of yeast or Flor are eventually removed from the ageing DP116, prompting oxidative maturation and the development of subtle nutty flavours. Seppeltsfield’s historic Solero nurseries are made picturesque by the carefully stacked barrels in which stocks of precious fortified wines gracefully age.
Deep golden colour with a light, olive green hue. Mixed fruit peel, aged flor nose, delicate honey and cherry/almond notes. Exquisite balance on the palate between freshness and aged oak characters, resolving on a dry finish of extraordinary length. The classic expression of a Solero style, retaining the vitality and freshness of dry Flor with added rancio complexity.
