One for all you white wine lovers! This cheeky little duo is from Australian mavericks Gentle Folk, who have over the past few years have gained huge attention (and rightly so!) and a cult following from across the world.
First up is Clouds which is named after the fact that the vineyard that produces the grapes spends half its life in the clouds. A crowd-pleasing Riesling that is super fresh, pure with minimal funk and crisp acidity.

Next up is Summertown Blanc which is a brand new vineyard for the Gentle Folk guys, set up in 2019. 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. An absolute belter and already an established fan favourite!
