About The Wine

A new vineyard and a new wine enters the Gentle Folk family in 2019.

The Sauvignon Blanc from Gareth and Rainbo's Scary Gully vineyrd is now gone - in its place is this sunshine-in-a-glass Sauvignon from a new site in the bucolic setting of Summertown/Ashton Valley.

It's the perfect spot for Sauv. Cool, a northerly aspect to allow long, slow ripening. It produces Sauvignon with less of the grassy, green flavours and more of the juicy, succulent Summer fruits that make this variety the perfect wine to crush with fish and chips in the park.

About Gentle Folk

Deep in the rolling vineyards of the Basket Range in the Adelaide Hills lives Gareth and Rainbo Belton.

They are two of the country's leading experts in seaweed who caught the wine bug a few years ago and now run a winery making small batches of fun and creative wines with their friends in the Basket range.

Gareth farms their three vineyards himself. He works organically in the vineyard and with little to no additions in the winery. The Gentle Folk wines have an energy and style all their own.

Made for drinking with friends and family, these are clean, unpretentious and delicious wines built for fun times. Get involved and be Gentle with each other.

Additional Info

From The Producer

A new vineyard for us in 2019. We sadly lost the Sauvignon blanc at Scary Gully after the 2018 harvest but we luckily managed to find a special site close by. The Cottell family vineyard is a 1.1ha block of relatively old vines in the very beautiful Summertown/ Ashton valley that is home to many a great vineyard.

The northerly aspect allows the fruit to ripen fully and leave behind many of the less desirable Sauvignon characters. It’s a generous and full-bodied wine with great depth and character which still holds a great acid line that we get in Sauvignon blanc grown in cooler sites.

We hope many bottles of this wine will be drunk at the park and beach over summer.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
