Gentle Folk, Rainbow Juice
RAINBOW JUICE! A blend of literally every grape variety over at Gentle Folk; 22 in total!! All grapes in this juice rocket are basket-pressed, followed by a bit of barrel ageing, and finally blended after fermentation. 100% Natty, No sulphites added. This mysterious blend is a juicy concoction of acidity from the white grapes, with plump raspberry and crunchy red fruit notes, and a dash of spice for good measure. Funky, Juicy, Colourful - what else could you want!?
Grapes: 22 varieties, consisting of red and white grapes (too fu*k1ng many to name)
Place: Adelaide Hills, Australia
A love of wine, food and growing things eventually led Gareth and Rainbo Belton away from their former careers involving scuba gear and the study of seaweed. Having fallen in love with the gastronomy and the people of the Adelaide Hills, they set up shop in the Basket Range to make the wines that they liked to drink, and thus work organically and biodynamically in the vines, and with as little intervention as possible in the winery. They don’t like to define their styles or wine making techniques, just make wine in the way they feel is right for the grapes and season, and with maximum drinkability and enjoyment in mind. Crushability is the name of the game.
