Gentle Folk - Rainbow Juice 2021
Region: Adelaide Hills
Orange wine? Rosé? These rigid labels become increasingly obsolete when contrasted with the fact that what it most certainly IS, is undeniably delicious. Gentle by both name and nature. Soft and approachable yet wonderfully aromatic and refreshing. Effortlessly drinkable and organic to boot. What's not to like?
NOTES FOR NERDS
Vineyards: Charleston (Pinot gris & Syrah), Summertown (Sauvignon blanc), Ashton (Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay) & Woodside (Gewürztraminer)
All organically farmed.
Winemaking notes: Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer were picked and co-fermented together for six days before being pressed and aged in stainless steel. The Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay were also fermented on skins for a week before pressings and going into 500L oak puncheons. The wine was blended and bottled unfined and unfiltered in August 2021 with a small amount of sulphur and a 2% addition of Syrah to give it a slight pink blush.
