Description

Winemaker Rob Mack was named Australia’ s ‘ Young Gun of Wine’ in 2018, after only a few years of producing wines alongside his wife, Louise. They decided to name their winery Aphelion; derived from the Ancient Greek meaning “ from the sun to you” – pretty apt for the sun-soaked conditions in South Australia’s McLaren Vale. Fruit is sourced from quality growers in Blewitt Springs and White Valley, including some of the region’s oldest Grenache vines. This blend is made from fruit sourced from four parcels of Blewitt Springs Grenache, three parcels of McLaren Vale Mataro, and two parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

TASTING NOTES

Dark cherry, spice, and savoury herb characters come together to form a very complex nose. This blend is medium-bodied, with powdery and ripe tannins, showing a complex structure with a very long flavour length. Plush red and blue fruits mingle with sage and aniseed.

FOOD PAIRING

A nicely charred steak, a late-summer barbecue, a good homemade burger, and a Sunday roast would all work well
