Grown on shallow rocky soils high up in Forest Range, this release - a welcomed return to the fold - has a fine boned line and is all about minerality and hints of lime and white peach from a much colder season in 2021.

"Out of a lot of the colour and joy in the Basket Range, Adelaide Hills, perhaps one of the most concerted and considered projects is Gentle Folk. Farming hard, and organic, careful winemaking, a lot of hand wringing and a yen for staying mostly out of the spotlight, Gareth Belton and family are making increasingly very serious wines. The new releases of single vineyard chardonnay and pin0ts are case in point. Here’s the ‘home vineyard’ expression of chardy.

It’s a ripper. I tasted with a good friend and I said ‘shades of Sorrenberg’ after initially saying ‘geez, this is flavour town stuff’, and yes, it’s rich in a way but sits fresh and sleek in the palate. There’s gentle stone fruit, casual cashew nut savouriness, preserved lemon, a faint general minerality going on. But it’s soft, mallow-mellow and cruises along at a gentle pace. Flesh, pulp, generosity but liveliness. It’s moreish and quietly complex. This is chardonnay for all the lovers of great ilks of the variety. Must do."
