We’re on here. Start your evening with this Grenache and you’ll be sitting pretty alright. A drop that jumps out of the glass at you, it’s a fine choice to kick things off. With red currant and cinnamon flavours and a lively acidity, it’s light bodied, juicy, quaffable stuff.


We love what Aphelion Wine Co. is all about. Small parcels of locally sourced fruit, a husband-wife couple and a passion for making exceptional wine. As a team, they have been well awarded by the wine critics (if we were into ratings we'd be sold by a 94-pointer from JH alone). But Aphelion have a lot more exciting things going for them besides. Winemaker Rob Mack has even taken out the Young Gun of Wine award. Get 'em while they're hot, these guys are going gangbusters.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

"Fresh vibrancy and outrageous aromatics are the hallmarks of this wine. Single vineyard 80 year old bush vine Grenache from the Blewitt Springs sub region of McLaren Vale. Fruit was de-stemmed with whole berries remaining intact and fermented to dryness. Free run juice and light pressings was then transferred from the ferment to a 2,400L old oak Foudre where it matured until bottling in January 2020. Unfined & unfiltered."

FOOD MATCH

A vino this versatile tastes cracking with light to medium bodied cuisine. We’d suggest getting your favourite names around the table and giving some light tapas a go. Or a cheese board with some fresh chevre would match the youthful vibrancy very nicely indeed.
