A serious Grenache of some complexity, but most remarkably, great depth and structure.
About The Wine
This is an elite example of McLaren Vale Grenache from Rob Mack and the Aphelion team, here. It's only released in years when the quality of fruit is just right, to craft the best of the best in their fleet of delicious Grenache offerings.
This is a wine that will develop well with some time in a quiet, dark place. An exciting addition to the Aphelion range.
Only 40 dozen made... get in quick.
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 is 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, more often than not there's something exciting and great value in the bottle.
