2019 Gentle Folk 'Ashton Hills' Chardonnay
There really are few teams in Australia doing as great a job at the moment than Adelaide Hills duo Gareth and Rainbo Belton of Gentle Folk wines. We can’t imagine how hard it is going to be to get our hands on these wines in the years to come.
The Ashton Hills is the richer of the three single vineyard Chardonnays from 2019. It's a little more immediately seductive on release. 25% new oak, full malolactic fermentation, 10 months on lees. A more opulent, cuddly type of Chardonnay but only relative to their other wines.
