Aphelion

2018 Young Gun Winemaker of the Year - Rob Mack (2017 "Best New Act")
5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

“[Aphelion's] poetic suite of grenache wines show a set of very unique expressions that are as fascinating as they are delicious. A thoughtful rendition that shows the right grape grown in the right place and delivered with insightful, respectful and attentive winemaking.” - Nick Stock

“[A] clever yet playful reinterpretation [of a McLaren Vale staple]. That this dynamic project is born of considered viticulture and thoughtful winemaking makes this one of the most exciting current projects in Australian wine,” - Mike Bennie

"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... Our aim in the winery is to handcraft minimal intervention authentic, quality McLaren Vale wines that speak of their provenance and match perfectly with the food you love." - Aphelion
