The Village Pinot Noir was created by Gareth Belton as a spring release to complement his single vineyard Pinot Noir releases.
The fruit is taken from the Scary Gully vineyard, a mix of multiple blocks and clones from the farm. Fermented as whole bunches for a week before being pressed off to old oak, this is Pinot stripped back to bare. It’s made with no additions in search of raw ‘Pinosity’ and ultimate drinking pleasure.
This is a softly spoken wine of quiet beauty. It’s light and feathery and a breath of fresh air for Pinot Noir fans all over.
What It Tastes Like
Yum. Freshly picked berries. A soft stalkiness and light dustings of tannin. There’s a satin finish to the mouthfeel. It glides through the mouth. The finishes is savoury and spiced. It’s insanely moreish.
A mixture of blocks and clones from our Scary Gully Vineyard in Forest Range.
Bottle Size: 750ml
Drink Until: 2021
About the Producer
Gentle Folk are another of the young brigade redefining the Adelaide Hills wine region. In winemaker Gareth Belton’s words, “We don’t like to define our styles or winemaking techniques, we just make wine in the way we feel is right for the grapes and season and most importantly, with maximum drinkability and enjoyment in mind.” the wines are naturally made but remain refreshing and crowd-pleasing, and considering their tiny production are excellent value.
The Adelaide Hills may be the most energised wine region in the country. The sense of exploration and creativity amongst the tribe of talented young winemakers in this region is unparralelled. The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate region.
No variety captures the hearts and minds of the wine lover quite like Pinot Noir. It’s the unicorn of many a winemaker. Notoriously fickle to grow, this delicate red variety can deliver a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas, from the bright and floral to the moody and mysterious and everything in between. The cooler regions of Australia are where Pinot Noir is most at home. Look to Tasmania and Victoria for the best examples, with some quality wines beginning to show from the Great Southern and from the cooler parts of NSW. Falling in love with Pinot Noir can be a life long affair, beware the charms of this most enchanting of grapes.
