About The Wine

A special collaboration here between two of the Basket Range's favourite sons, Gareth Belton and Taras Ochota.

Father's Milk is a Pinot Noir from a single dry-grown organic vineyard in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills, known as Scary Gully. Rigorous work in the vineyard has allowed for a Pinot Noir of much higher complexity than the standard Hills affair. The low and slow handling of the fruit and attention to detail by these two fascinating producers yielding a compelling Pinot Noir from the late-ripening 2017 vintage.

Only tiny amounts were made and allocations are small. Jump on it if you want to see what is born of Gentle Folk and Ochota Barrels.

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

Slick, smooth and slippery Pinot Noir here. Sort of blows your hair back. An inky core of blueberry and black cherry. Delicious moreish tannins. But it's al about the mouth feel. It slips and slides, drinks like a dream right now. A pinch of herb notes from the whole bunch but it's only a light detailing, nothing overt. Such a lovely expression of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir. Real 'Pinosity' here. Killer. - Different Drop Wine Team
