From two vineyards in Blewitt Springs, one 80y, the other 50yo, 75% whole berry/25% whole bunch, free-run juice, matured in used French puncheons and a foudre for 9 months. Delicious red fruits of every persuasion. All of the Aphelion wines are unfined and unfiltered.

Bright and full perfume of rose hip tea and faint Turkish Delight characters, maraschino cherry and strawberry. The palate teeters into sweetness but has a lovely, supple flow, good length and a fine, gently puckering, fresh-feeling finish. A sense of elegance here, with a wine ready to roll but also just that little bit enticing for future drinking too. Texture is beautiful. Delicious.

Medium to deep red/purple colour, with a sweetly aromatic cherry-spice aroma, with charm and depth. The wine is soft and fruity in the mouth with sweetness and silky texture. An easy wine to enjoy young, its future trajectory all but guaranteed by the subregional provenance. A very stylish wine with intensity, charm and poise.
