Our Rapture is a Best of Vintage blend.
About The Wine
Rob Mack is fleshing out the Aphelion range at the moment, bringing in new wines to showcase special parcels of fruit that he thinks best represents his label.
This is just the second release of his top blend, 'The Rapture' - the wine that Rob thinks best represents the Aphelion Wines of a particular season.
In 2018, the blend is comprised of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre, the holy trinity of McLaren Vale red varieties.
This is a wine that will develop well with some time in a quiet, dark place. An exciting new addition to the Aphelion range.
Only 50 dozen made.
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. They have close relationships with local growers in the Vale who provide them with excellent Grenache fruit and Rob's deft touch in the winery takes care of the rest.
The range is slowly growing, as is their family. Their investigation into their pet variety deepening, as is their fan base. The small batches of wine that come out of the Aphelion stable should have a close eye kept on them, most often there's something exciting and great value in the bottle.
