Aphelion The Confluence 2017 (Grenache)

$32.00 per bottle


Variety: Grenache from Blewitt Springs sub region of McLaren Vale.


Summary: This complex, aromatic, food friendly, but fantastically drinkable wine evolves in your glass. Good structure and length. Carries our signature savoury finish.


We Taste: Vibrant purple with crimson, the nose is full of spicy cherries and dusty herbs. The palate is juicy with vibrant acidity that gives the wine a good length of flavour. Complex red berry flavours mix with soft spice and savoury complexity thanks to the whole bunch and extended maceration ferments that form part of this
blend. Light to medium bodied with soft tannins.


Goes With Food: Pan seared duck matches the spice and medium body of the wine.


Goes With Cheese: The mushroom characters of a quality Camembert or washed rind cheese will complement the wine’s flavours and won’t dominate its delicate structure.


Goes With Music: Muse – Invincible


Goes With Life: Out for a fancy dinner or aperitivo on the back deck.


Serve At: 16-18 degrees Celsius. Unfined & unfiltered so some sediment may remain – we recommend decanting.


When to Drink: Ready to drink now, but will continue evolving through to 2025.


Winemaking: All hand-picked fruit. 70% grown on 80 year old bush vines in Blewitt Springs, the balance from a separate Blewitt Springs vineyard with 50 year old vines. Both vineyards on sandy soil.

Minimal intervention winemaking.

Whole bunches were foot trod.

A natural sediment may remain, we recommend decanting all our wines.


Production: 240 dozen produced under screwcap.
