About

Aphelion was established by Rob Mack and Louise Rhodes with a clear vision. They had one thing on their mind, to craft: "Genuine, Authentic, Quality McLaren Vale Grenache." A couple of vintages in and they are right on the money. This 2016 release is simply beautiful. Sourced from gnarly, 80-year-old bush vines rooted in the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs, this fresh and vital version of Grenache is set decidedly to a "Drink-Me-Now" tempo. It's McLaren Vale Grenache at its most irresistible. The only downside is there were only 75 cases made.

What it Tastes Like

"One of those distinct, powerful scents, that is, you’ll likely remember this wine just from sniffing it. Dark berries, plums, Chinese five spice, cola, new leather, earth. Wonderful stuff. Medium weight palate with sweet, rich, ripe berry fruitiness, cool acidity, faint tannins and a light sprinkling of green, alpine herb-like freshness. It’s a glorious drink, fine, fresh and vibrant, easy to slug down, but equally easy to sit on and admire. Bravo." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
