Straight out of the blocks, this new wine label established in 2014 by husband and wife Rob and Louise Mack has already gained a strong reputation for quality and value. Pedigreed winemaker Rob Mack concentrates on grape varieties that thrive in the Mediterranean climate of McLaren Vale, producing stylish Grenache as well as other regionally emerging varieties, such as Mataro and Sagrantino. They craft their wines to match the foods they love to eat - Italian, Mediterranean, and Asian. It starts with the sun and the earth. Aphelion Wine Co.’s growers are passionate about producing premium, hand tended grapes from only the most select, unique parcels of land. *2018 Young Gun Winemaker of the Year Award Winner*
NED GOODWIN - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
Fermented partly in tank and barrel, the latter portion under the aegis of ambient yeast with regular stirring, this is a very fine chenin. Texturally detailed, impeccably poised and intense of red apple flavours etched with a pungent flintiness, this evinces authority while going down easily. A complex wine of purity, precision and little fuss, hailing from single vineyard, 50 years of age.
