The Aphelion Confluence 2019 Grenache is a key flagstone wine for us. We are known for our Grenache and our Confluence is a perfect example of complex, delicious wine that works as beautifully with food as it does being savoured on its’ own.
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: 18 degrees Celsius.
When to Drink: Ready to drink now, but will continue evolving through to 2030.
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 (70%) and whole bunch (30%) ferments. Majority free run juice with a small percentage of light
pressings. A portion of the wine was left on skins for four months to add spice and depth. Aged in neutral French oak puncheons and foudre for ten months before blending and bottling. Unfined & unfiltered.
Production: 430 dozen produced under screwcap.
