Confluence Grenache 2021
Aphelion – McLaren Vale, South Australia
Aphelion was founded in 2014 by husband and wife team Rob Mack and Louise Rhodes with a focus on hand-picked, small-batch winemaking and a mission to “bottle sunshine” (aphelion is Greek for “from the sun”). Less than ten vintages into their journey, Aphelion’s rise has been meteoric, winning multiple accolades including McLaren Vale’s Best Small Producer award in 2019. Aphelion’s speciality is Grenache, both the white and red varieties.
