Gentle Folk - 2021 Rainbow Juice

2021 Rainbow Juice

Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer
Basket Range, South Australia

Gareth Belton and Rainbo Belton get it. They get wine. Based in the Basket Range on a hilly outcrop that washes the winery in sun every morning, the pair look after a fair few vineyards and a myriad of varieties, making everything from cru Chardonnay that mirrors great Burgundy to every week drinks that aren’t meant to make you think. A sensible approach to viticulture and winemaking, caring for the land sustainably and letting the wines speak for themselves in the cellar.  This wine is one Gareth makes that is a blend of many of the varieties they farmed over the season, meant to be a kinda rose, a kinda orange, a kinda just great wine. Strawberries and cream, lychee, orange pop; slippery and quick is how this one goes.
