About The Wine

Here's a deliciously vibrant, naturally made Pinot Noir from the hands of Gareth Belton and his Scary Gully vineyard.

The block that produced this fruit is on such an angles that tractors invariably find it difficult to navigate (hence "Slip Block"). Fermented as 100% whole bunches, this shows the signature, earthy, fruits-of-the-forest wildness that Gareth's Pinots are known for with a great lift in perfume.

This was unfined and unfiltered with no other additions on its way to bottle.

It's a thirst-crushing style of Pinot. Don't hog it, sharing is caring.

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.

"More savoury and serious than our spring Pinot noir, but with that distinctive Scary Gully wow, this wine is best enjoyed by the fire over a number of hours with friends." - Gareth Belton, owner/winemaker
