Aphelion The Verdant 2017 (Grenache Bunch) SOLD OUT

$32.00 per bottle


Variety: Single vineyard 80 year old bush vine Grenache from the Blewitt Springs sub region of McLaren Vale.


Summary: The whole bunch character of this wine provides structure and a distinctive herbaceous complexity. Good flavour length is provided by juicy acidity and ripe tannin.


We taste: Strong herbal and mescal notes match with red fruits and roasted meats. This is a light to medium bodied wine with a slightly firmer tannin structure than its siblings. The palate is dense with flavour impact yet
light on its feet and finishes well balanced. Smoky charcuterie and earth herbs mingle on the finish.


Goes With Food: Matches well with savoury dishes such as rabbit ragout or wild mushroom and spinach pizza with truffle oil.


Goes With Cheese: Washed rind soft cheese or even a mild blue complement the olive and earthy characters in the wine.


Goes With Music: The Beatles – Happiness is a Warm Gun.


Goes With Life: When you want a wine that starts a conversation about it – complexity abounds.


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 2028.


Vineyard: All hand-picked fruit from 80 year old bush vines growing in sandy soil in Blewitt Springs


Winemaking: Fruit was left as 100% whole bunch to ferment to dryness. Free run juice was then transferred from the ferment to a single 500L neutral French puncheon where it matured for 9 months prior to bottling in
December 2017. Unfined & unfiltered.


Production: 50 dozen produced under screwcap.
