About The Wine
Sharing is caring in the Adelaide Hills, particularly amongst the vanguard of younger generation producers coming through the ranks.
Here, Gareth and Rainbo Belton tackle a parcel of fruit from Michael Downer's Murdoch Hill vineyard in Oakbank. The Oakbank area is a little warmer than some of the pockets of the Hills where Gareth grows his Pinot Noir, making it the perfect place to grow spicy, slippery, peppery cool-climate Syrah.
It's made just the same way as the Pinot Noirs with 100% whole bunches and a quarter new oak. It's floral and sexy and has great colour and structure. An awesome release from Gareth.
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.
