2017 Gentle Folk Clouds adelaide hills, australia
$35

A new release wine from Gentle Folk and Gareth Belton.
From Scary Gully Vineyard. Whole bunch pressed and fermented in tank before being put into barrel. Lo-fi stuff done good. This wine blew me out of the water. Exciting, diverse expression. Tasted on a rainy afternoon on a wet deck overlooking a small creek in Basket Range. Bucolic setting.
A very complex, textural, rich, saline, generous and oxidative style of riesling – it does a lot of things but holds it all together superbly. Generous with slurpy texture and honeyed notes, ripe apple, ripe lemon, a squish of grapefruit pulp while perfume hovers over the wine floral and faintly saline. Just lovely. Superior deliciousness too. A very layered, intriguing expression here. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
