Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Gentle Folk Merlot adelaide hills, australia
$40

We've had these wines hiding away for a while now...
Notes from the winemaker, Gareth:
From the Broderick Vineyard next door to the winery in Basket Range. A special site that we have been working with from day one. Although this block normally gets blended into our other Bordeaux blend wines, we have always loved this straight Merlot and at last we have plucked up the courage to bottle it separately. Two barrels only. Wine making was 100% destemmed fermentation, worked daily with feet, only the free run juice was used, 10 months in old french barriques before being racked, settled and bottled in February 2018 without fining or filtration.
