About The Wine

The Gentle Folk winemaking style continues to evolve, every year Gareth learns a little more, every year the vines get a little older.

His Chardonnay is a playful, loose-knit expression of the variety made with very little tinkering in the winery.

Natural ferment, left to its own devices for several months in barrel where it was left untopped and undisturbed. No additions or clarification to the wine. Just Adelaide Hills Chardonnay from grape to glass.

It's nutty and waxy and oh so tasty. A ripping Chardonnay to be drunk with gusto.

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

Nice loosey goosey Chardonnay here. Fruit flows easy and generous, a thread of minerality through the core. Flavours of golden delicious apples with a gentle tug of talcy grip. Clean and bright from front to back. Crunchy pineapple acidity is the sign-off. Like this. Dances to its own beat and it's a good groove. - Different Drop Wine Team
