2022 Gentle Folk 'Village' Grenache

Login to view price.

The 'Village' range of wines represent Gentle Folk's range of wines produced with fruit from organic growers in their village (Adelaide Hills). These are serious, structured wines that represent their variety and vineyard incredibly well, but retain an element of drinkability to them too - these wines are super aromatic and juicy but still have tannin structure and flavour. Great drinking - can serve slightly chilled if desired too.

From Gareth Belton, Winemaker: "

We couldn't not have a play with this insane old bush-vine Grenache from the sands of Blewitt Springs. Raspberry and redcurrant on the nose and in the mouth it has those subtle and silky tannins we all love in Grenache. A treasure.
