The Aphelion Confluence 2022 Grenache is a key flagstone wine for us.

It's been with us from the very beginning.

We are Grenache specialists and our Confluence is a perfect example of complex, delicious wine that works as beautifully with food as it does being savoured on its' own.

Meet the Confluence

Variety: Grenache from Blewitt Springs sub region of McLaren Vale.

Summary: This complex, aromatic, food friendly, but fantastically drinkable wine evolves in your glass. Good structure and length. Carries our signature savoury finish.

Tasting Note: 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. A wine that shows great poise and balance.

Goes With Food: Pan seared duck matches the spice and body of the wine well.

Goes With Cheese: The mushroom characters of a quality Camembert or washed rind cheese will complement the wine’s flavours and won’t dominate its delicate structure.

Goes With Music: Nick Cave – Jubilee Street

Goes With Life: Out for a fancy dinner or aperitivo on the back deck.

Serve At: 18 degrees Celsius.

When to Drink: Ready to drink now, but will continue evolving through to 2035.

Unfined & unfiltered.

Vegan.

Low sulphur.

Our love affair with Grenache now extends to it's white wine form.

Presenting the Callow - meaning "unfledged".

Grenache Blanc is an exciting new variety to Australia which is in millions of glasses in the US.

Rob's take on Grenache Blanc has intense and vibrant aromatics mingling with citrus and spice.

A textural edge provides a food friendly aspect.

Cinnamon and nutmeg spice complement the nashi pear and stone fruit flavours. 

Variety: Grenache Blanc.

Summary: Fruit from a single vineyard near Kangarilla in McLaren Vale is hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to create a wine of purity, freshness, and elegance. Vibrant acidity provides potential for the wine to cellar well over the medium term.

Tasting Note: Intense and vibrant fruit character aromatics mingle with citrus and spice. A textural edge provides a food friendly aspect, and cinnamon and nutmeg spice complement the nashi pear and stone fruit flavours.

Goes With Food: Bouillabaisse matches the body and spicy notes of this wine.

Goes With Cheese: Comté will not overwhelm the wine and the spice characters of the wine add complexity to the match.

Vineyard: Sourced from the organic & biodynamic Yangarra vineyard near Kangarilla in McLaren Vale.

Winemaking: The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to

and cool ferment occurred and once complete 20% of the wine was
transferred to second use French oak to mature with the balance remaining
in tank. The batches were combined just prior to bottling in August 2021.
