Our world class Grenache. Produced right here in McLaren Vale.
The pinnacle of Aphelion's Grenache-focused winemaking.
2022 was an outstanding vintage so a thrilling release.
Extremely limited production.
A vibrant purple hue in the glass. Brooding but fleshy aromatics are laced with an herbal spice note. Tannins are prominent but don’t dominate – cherry pip flavours wash over the mid palate. A savoury finish with an immense length and persistence. This wine will blossom with some bottle age.
Goes With Food: Perfect with duck rillettes and crunchy sourdough bread.
Goes With Cheese: An intense washed rind cheese such as Epoisses will match the intensity and savoury aspect of this Grenache well.
Goes With Music: Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun
Goes With Life: When you’re looking to impress at a wine dinner you won’t
go wrong pulling this out.

The Wait Single Vineyard Grenache 2022 is sourced from the Top Bush block owned by the Wait family in the northeast corner of the Blewitt Springs area of McLaren Vale.
Planted in the mid 1940’s, this block is dry grown and provides small berries with intense flavour and prominent tannin.
The most structural and savoury wine in the range, brooding in character with earth and briary characters dominating the palate.
