Aphelion McLaren Vale Grenache 2014
Winemaking : One tonne of hand picked, 70 year old, single vineyard bush vine Grenache, from Blewitt Springs was split into two half tonne fermentation bins. No pumps were used in the vinification of our grenache wines, just gravity flow.
Both batches were fermented to dryness, then free run off into two neutral French oak barriques. The remainder was pressed, into a third barrique.
After nine months maturation in the oak we hand bottled 100 bottles from each barrel, and blended the remainder of the three barrels to produce this wine.
Enjoy through to 2020.
540 bottles produced.
