2020 Gentle Folk Village Chardonnay

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

Low yields for most in 2020 means this year's release by Gareth is extra tasty. Organically farmed from vineyards of 16-37 years with a mix of sandstone, quartz and schist. The fruit is 100% whole bunch pressed with a night on skins. Racked to a mix of French and Austrian barriques, puncheons & foudres for nine months. Full of moreish salivation, clean on the palate with a smoky reductive mineral note that softens to a creamy frame with time open. Develops over a day or more, if you can make it last that long.

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.
