When we first started Wine Diamonds we wrote a long list of producers who one day, over time, we would love to represent. In that list was Gareth Belton from Gentle Folk Wines, from Basket Range in South Australia. At the time, Gentle Folk’s ‘Gnomes’ was in a class of its own, and all of his Basket Range peers would have agreed. His wines are so remarkably fresh, vibrant, yet with so much structure and interest that they simply occupy a completely different bracket to anyone else.
