Gentle Folk are becoming famous for a few things. Among them is their stellar Chardonnay's including a few single vineyard expressions (we have the Ashton vineyard chardonnay too). This is a combination of all three of their chardonnay sites and is a wonderful regional expression of Chardonnay.
Gentle Folk wines are generally unpretentious and all about drinkability and enjoyment but paired with appropriate precision and delicacy. this is an examplar of that.
Organic vineyards at 500-600m on a range of schist, sandstone and quartz. Whole bunch pressed to French and Austrian barriques and larger barrels for 9 months - 15% of them new.
For those that are curious, Adelaide Hills is one of the best cool climate regions of Australia which happens to have a huge collection of fabulous natural focused Australian winemakers making waves in Australia and across the wine world. A melting pot of creativity, quality and natural wine ethos.
Gentle Folk is the work of love by Gareth and Rainbo deep in the Basket Range in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. They farm their various parcels biodynamically and/or organically themselves and set out to make unpretentious wines with a view towards maximum drinkability to share with friends and food. In saying that, they happen to produce wines of real balance and sense of place. Gentle wines for gentle times.
