2019 Gentle Folk Mixed 3pk

Varietal: pinot noir

Region: south australia

Over the past few years Gareth and Rainbo Belton of Gentle Folk have acquired the leases for several stunning vineyards in the Basket Range region of the rugged Adelaide Hills. They've worked hard to lovingly tend to these vineyards by hand using biodynamic practices and we are excited to share with you a mixed 3pk of the literal fruits of their labour. The Gentle Folk Mixed 3pk includes 1x each: 1x 2019 Piccadilly Pinot Noir: The Piccadilly Pinot Noir is the more brooding Pinot of this years' trio. It's darker in colour and in nature, leaning towards the tertiary. Notes of over-ripe red fruit, mushroom, game and a bit of chocolate. 1x 2019 Little Creek Pinot Noir: The Little Creek Pinot Noir is from the Norton Summit, and is the lightest, most ethereal of the lot. As with the other two Pinots, this was made with 100% whole bunches and about a quarter of the oak barrels used were new. The difference between the wines comes purely from the vineyard: in this case, with the soils a mix of clay, sandstone, schist and quartz rubble, a more ethereal, perfumed expression of Pinot Noir has emerged. 1x 2019 Little Creek Pinot Noir: The Little Creek Pinot Noir is from the Norton Summit, and is the lightest, most ethereal of the lot.

The Merlot grapes were fermented as whole bunches in an open-top fermenter before spending 11 months in old French oak barriques. A supple merlot, showing notes of blue and black berries, plums, cocoa and bay leaf.
