2021 Vin de Sofa
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. A new varietal for the pair this year, Sangiovese with the lip-smacking red fruit, with some Pinot Noir, Syrah and Merlot in the mix too, blended to form the perfect wine to sit back on the couch and binge watch Netflix to. This one needs the fridge for ultimate enjoyment.
