Aphelion Welkin 'Project 5255' Malbec 2020
The Welkin #project5255 Malbec By Aphelion 2020 is a very special project wine. And absolutely delicious too! #project5255 is a world renowned project created by Langhorne Creek Grape & Wine to highlight the versatility and quality of the region.
The team at Aphelion chose to work with Malbec and have crafted a perfumed, spiced, and nuanced modern take on Langhorne Creek Malbec.
Langhorne Creek 5255 is a collaborative project between growers and winemakers from Langhorne Creek. The project has been designed to provide three winemakers with the opportunity to create a one-off wine under their own label that solely showcases Langhorne Creek fruit.
