Aphelion, “2018 Young Gun Winemaker of the Year Award Winner” 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.

Expert Reviews:

James Halliday -96 Points. Bush vines bent into the high sands of Blewiit Springs by the weariness of time. Minuscule yields, resulting in a single 300L barrel of liquid. 100% whole bunches, foot trodden daily and pressed to one prized barrel. A wine that is now firmly entrenched in the pantheon of the country's finest. A limpid light ruby. Transparent. Firecracker aromas of sour cherry, cranberry, white pepper, raspberry, clove and tamarind. The tannins, a scaly carapace that directs, tones and services a savoury, chiselled frisk to the work at hand. Brilliant Ned Goodwin MW. James Halliday Wine Companion 2022, 13 August, 2021
