PersonalisedÂ Aphelion The Confluence Grenache 2021Â 13.8% 750ml
*2018 Young Gun Winemaker of the Year Award Winner*
On the palate Satsuma plum, wild strawberry and fine sandalwood dominate with fine tannins giving the wine exemplary length. The palate shows great intensity and concentration without being heavy or cloying. A wine that shows great poise and balance.
James Suckling -96 Points. A really strong edition of this grenache, packed with ripe raspberry and red-plum aromas, as well as toasted spices, berry pastry, some wild herbs and terra cotta. The palate has such impressive depth and purity of red-plum and raspberry flavor. Such ripeness and freshness with real depth and drive. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
