The Aphelion Brini Single Vineyard Grenache 2021 is sourced from the upper tank block owned by the Brini family in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale.
This block has been a staple of Aphelion from their first vintage and forms the backbone of the Confluence Grenache.
The roundest and most intense wine in the range, dark plum fruits dominate with earth and forest floor characters. This creates a wine of depth and richness. Sandy based loam soils provide fruit that gives intensity and a brooding edge.
Bright with a deep purple hue in the glass. Lifted aromatics of cinnamon spice, damson plum, and brown sugar with a briar character that evolves in time. Medium plus in body, a savoury bitterness
with an herbal edge balances the sweet cherry fruit. Prominent tannin provides a good structure and flavour length.
