2019 Gentle Folk ‘Oakbank’ Shiraz
There really are few teams in Australia killing it as much as Gareth and Rainbo 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 Belton’s Oakbank Shiraz comes from Murdoch Hill. It’s whole bunch fermented and aged with a touch of new oak. This is South Australian Shiraz, so it’s not surprising that there's a richness here and bags of dark fruit. But it is still much lighter, spicier and complex than what you might expect. I guess that makes sense given that the couple's first love is Pinot Noir.
