About The Wine
Rob Mack and Aphelion are always looking to push boundaries, and that's exactly what the new 'Welkin' range is all about.
First up we have an Adelaide Hills Chenin Blanc, picked early for acidity and freshness, with four months on lees for a bit of richness and complexity.
A lovely Summer drink and another example of why this variety is gaining such popularity amongst Australian wine trade and drinkers alike.
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.
