Aphelion Rapture Grenache
Extremely Limited
98 POINTS

One of the greatest examples of Grenache you will see in Australia.

Only released in years when the quality of fruit is just right, to craft the best of the best. Only 480 bottles made in total, so if you can get your hands on one, consider yourself very lucky.

"The top expression of grenache from Aphelion, this is a combination of Wait and Brini vineyards, both containing bush vines planted in the 1940s. This is a complex wine already, with a nose that’s so enticingly complex and detailed. It has bracken, sappy elements, berry pastry, spiced notes, raspberry, red plum and candied orange peel. The palate has a very plush, complete and seamless feel. This is so commanding, yet so deliciously appealing at once. Impressive poise, with long tannins that drive and frame the red and dark-berry fruit-soaked finish. Matured in a single, neutral demi-muid. Drink or hold." (98 Points - James Suckling)
