2019 Gentle Folk Vin de Sofa
"A blend of Pinot noir and Pinot gris from Scary Gully Vineyard in Forest Range. Great to have Pinot gris back in the blend for 2019. Scary Gully is a powerful site in terms of wine style, and to be able to produce a light easy drinking red has been a journey in winemaking and farming. The use of semi-carbonic allows us to ‘infuse’ flavours from the grapes as opposed to extract them through pigeage or pumpovers, and thus, keep the wine as delicate as possible. The use of whole bunches also helps to elevate the pH and soften out the wine even though we pick the grapes super early and with some serious acid. Although we try to make the wine as fun as possible, it is a no bullshit wine that pays homage to Pinot and a great site. Enjoy."
