Aphelion Brini Single Vineyard Grenache 2021

Grenache | South Australia, Australia

Eucalypt / menthol with a little musk on quite classic Grenache flavours with a little bubble gum, rhubarb, candied citrus peel, baking spice. Perhaps feeling the most complete at the moment. It will be interesting to see how all 3 develop over time. With excellent length and palate weight.

Aphelion Wait Single Vineyard Grenache 2021

Grenache | South Australia, Australia

A riper fruit profile. Whilst richer it retains freshness. A little more grip building here. A graphite, mineral feel. Just the slightest touch of raisining in a good way. Violets on red fruit, a little more darkness and baking spice here with blood orange citrus. As it settles in the glass all things fall into place and it builds a charming elegance.

Aphelion Trenery Single Vineyard Grenache 2021

Grenache | South Australia, Australia

Fascinating set of three wines. The Trenerry is the most perfumed roses, a little menthol, on red fruits, rhubarb and a little orange citrus. Fine, delicate and Pinotesque. Herbal stalk spice with a little grip from stalk tannin. Playful and fun. Fruit builds depth and length in the glass. A freshness, lively acidity and perfume. It will be fascinating to see how this resolves and builds in the bottle over the coming years.

This wine always shows great touch.

Aphelion Rapture Grenache 2021

Grenache | South Australia, Australia

Wow there is some zip. The blend is more than the sum of its parts. The different perfumes: violets and fading flowers, fruits: red, rhubarb, blood orange, a little musk, spice and beyond marry offering a complex profile. The build in tannin across the palate is fine yet not insignificant. There is more immediate harmony and expression than with the single vineyard wines. Darkness with freshness. The refreshing, thirst quenching nature of the wine is once again a demonstration of the shift from

Cappellano Barbera Gabutti 2015

Barbera | Serralunga d'Alba, Barolo

Another great Piemonte vine, another great aspect of the Gabutti vineyards. A classic Barbera, feminine in its generosity and masculine in its posture. It is characterised by a distinctive acidity which sustains softness and fruit, and delivers a vibrating tasting experience until the long finale. The wine gives the impression of partial incompleteness, of continuous change; like all the red wines with strong character it takes its time to unveil its potentiality, character, and pleasures.
