Aphelion Wine is akin to a miniature painting done with single-hair paintbrushes. When you consider the credentials of winemaker Rob Mack, supported by co-founder wife Louise Rhodes Mack, great oaks come to mind. Rob has accumulated two degrees (first Accounting and Management in 2007, then the Bachelor of Wine Science from CSU in ’16). He scaled the heights of direct marketing as wine buyer and planner (June ’10–Jan ’13) for Laithwaites Wine People, and spent the next 18 months as production manager for Direct Wines in McLaren Vale. Woven through this has been significant employment with five wineries, four in McLaren Vale, which he obviously knows well. Rob was voted Young Gun of Wine ’18 and Aphelion won Best Small Producer at the McLaren Vale Wine Show in '19. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada and Hong Kong.
