About The Wine

Gnomes is a twist on a classic Bordeaux blend, made naturally from a single vineyard in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills.

The fruit comes from Broderick farm, patch of land farmed with organic principals next door to Gentle Folk's Gareth and Rainbo Belton.

Merlot forms the base of this wine with inputs from Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon, a bit of Pinot Noir in the mix adds a lift of forest fruits and a little vibrancy to make this the perfect Autumn afternoon drink.

It's fleshy and slurpable yet with some good underlying structure, it's a modern take on a classic Merlot blend.

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

Juicy bluebreey, blackcurrants, twigs, bay leaves and a bright red-fruit top note laced with flowers. It's the plump side of medium bodied. Feels easy, smooth and so young and fresh with a calm seriousness and structure underneath. Cool wine. Feels youthful but serious. - Different Drop Wine Team
