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.
Harvested from vines planted in 1990, grown in light clay soils rich with quartz and ironstone, driving strong minerality through the wine. The Merlot grapes were fermented as whole bunches in an open top fermenter before spending 11 months in old French oak barrique. A supple merlot, showing notes of blue and black berries, plums, cocoa and bay leaf.
