Gentle Folk - Vin De Sofa 2021
Region: Adelaide Hills
Delightfully moreish fridge red from the gentle folks at Gentle Folk. A blend of Sangiovese, Pinot Noir and Syrah sourced from a couple of beautiful organic and biodynamic, cool climate sites in Charleston and Norton Summit in the Hills. Light bodied and hitting all the right notes with freshness, juiciness and savoury minerality all in perfect harmony. Effortlessly enjoyable.
NOTES FOR NERDS
The varieties were fermented separately and blended together after five months of aging. In terms of specific details, the Sangiovese was destemmed and macerated for three weeks before pressing and elevage in stainless steel. The Pinot Noir was 100% whole bunch fermented, pressed after ten days, and aged in a mixture of stainless steel and 225L barriques. The Merlot and Syrah were macerated as 20% whole bunch for two weeks before being pressed into 500L puncheons. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered in August 2021 with a small addition of sulphur.
