2021 Gentle Folk Ashton Chardonnay - Adelaide Hills, SA. 750ml


Our fourth release from this little patch of goodness where the aspect and deep clay soils result in a wine with boldness and spiciness. There's texture, beautiful stone fruit characters and a punching acid line from the long, cool 2021 season.
