Aphelion The Confluence Grenache 2017
Region: McLaren Vale, SA
"A luscious, full-bodied wine with coherent texture and structure."
- James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
Aphelion Wine Co concentrate on grape varieties that thrive in the Mediterranean climate of McLaren Vale, with a sprinkling of the best of surrounding regions, like the cooler Adelaide Hills.
We craft our wines to match the foods we love to eat – Italian, Mediterranean, and Asian. Think tomato, ginger, garlic, chilli, seafood.
McLaren Vale wine region is diverse, with 19 different soil types. It is sustainable, with more than 60% of vineyards certified by the locally developed Sustainable Australia Winegrowing program.
Varieties from Italy, Greece and Spain do very well here, as they suit our changing climate, what we put on our dinner tables, and what we order when we eat out.
