About The Wine

If you love the free and easy vibes of the 'natural wine' scene, then Blossoms is going to right up your alley.

This unique blend of Merlot and Chardonnay is a red set to a mellow mood. It's made with Gareth Belton's trademark gentle touch, combining the soft, plummy fruit of Adelaide Hills Merlot with the fleshy mouthfeel and vibrant acidity of Adelaide Hills Chardonnay.

This is a slow jam wine, loose-knit and easy going.

It's a lovely thing to drink.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

The Blossoms is a fun and fleshy red. It smells of cranberry, redcurrant, plum and smouldering leaves, with a twist of squeezed orange peel. It's so slurpable, set to a soft and juicy medium bodied style. The finish is a little tart and tucked in with gently powdery tannins. Joyful red wine built for good times. - Different Drop Wine Team
