Gentle Folk Vin De Sofa

$24.95

Gareth and Rainbo Belton are the creative force behind Gentle Folk Wines. Originally from South Africa, Gareth has lived in Australia for two decades. In their previous careers the couple worked as marine scientists specializing in the study of seaweed. It does not surprise that when they started growing grapes, they chose to do so according to the natural rhythms of the environment. They organically and biodynamically farm 7.5 hectares of vines spread over 5 sites, producing only 3500 cases of wine each year.

This is how Gareth and Rainbo describe the Vin de Sofa – “A blend from various Adelaide Hills vineyards – Little Creek (Norton Summit), Scary Gully (Forest Range), Turnbull (Charleston) & Morialta (Norton Summit). The different varieties were fermented separately in 2020 due to a difference in ripening between sites. The Pinot noir was fermented as 100% whole bunch, pressed after 7 days and aged in neutral French barriques. The Pinot gris was direct pressed and fermented and aged in stainless steel. Merlot was all destemmed and spent 10 days on skins before being pressed and aged in stainless tanks. The wine was blended and bottled in August 2020. 7,920 bottles made. “
