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 an 80-year-old vineyard speckled with bush vines in the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs, this fresh and vital version of Grenache is set to a “Drink-Me-Now” tempo. The only downside is there were only 75 cases made.
92 points. “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)
