2021 Aphelion Confluence Grenache
Mclaren Vale, SA
The 2021 Aphelion Confluence Grenache is a blend of whole berry (75%) and whole bunch (25%) ferments. Majority free run juice with a small percentage of light pressings. Aged in neutral French oak puncheons and foudre for nine months before blending and bottling. Unfined & unfiltered.
“Vibrant red with purple hues in the glass. Raspberry, cinnamon spice, and red liquorice aromatics jump from the glass and an herbal edge gives great interest. 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.” – Aphelion Wine
