2019 Gentle Folk Summertown Blanc
Notes from Gareth, the grower and maker..:
A new vineyard for us in 2019. We sadly lost the Sauvignon Blanc at Scary Gully after the 2018 harvest but we luckily managed to find a special site close by. The Cottell family vineyard is a 1.1ha block of relatively old vines in the very beautiful Summertown / Ashton Valley that is home to many a great vineyard. The northerly aspect allows the fruit to ripen fully and leave behind many of the less desirable Sauvignon characters. It’s a generous and full-bodied wine with great depth and character which still holds a great acid line that we get in Sauvignon Blanc grown in cooler sites. We hope many bottles of this wine will be drunk at the park and beach over summer.
