Aphelion The Confluence 2018 (Grenache)

$35.00 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.

Tasting Note: Crunchy strawberry and Campari aromatics lead to a juicy palate full of ripe cranberries and a herbal edge thanks to the whole bunch component of this wine. A long length of flavour is provided by a beautiful line of acidity and a pure crystalline core of red berry fruit. A rasp of tannin on the finish ensures versatility.

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

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: Nick Cave – Jubilee Street

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

Serve At: 16-18 degrees Celsius. Unfined & unfiltered – we recommend decanting.

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

Vineyard: All hand-picked fruit. 60% 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.

Winemaking: A blend of whole berry (75%) and whole bunch (25%) ferments. Majority free run juice with a small percentage of light pressings. Aged in neutral French oak puncheons and foudre for nine months before blending and bottling.

Production: 550 dozen produced under screwcap.
