2019 Gentle Folk 'Norton Summit' Merlot

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

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. Mike Bennie describes the wine as 'Succulent, detailed and just straight up unreal to drink. What a coup'.

About the maker

From scuba divers to winemakers, a love of wine, food and growing things eventually led Gareth and Rainbo away from a very different background.

The Gentle Folk journey began in 2012 after Gareth and Rainbo met a couple of hairy wine makers in the Adelaide Hills. It started with three barrels and has grown each year to its current size. Now managing a number of vineyards, this pair are restoring and farming organically and biodynamically. Hand harvesting, minimal intervention and low yields. They farm a number of small parcels in Basket Range, Forest Range, Norton Summit, Summertown and Ashton and make intuitive winemaking decisions as they go along.
