The Gypsy Ken Forrester
South Africa - 2015
Tasting NotesTasting Note: Wild, spicy and full of concentrated red fruit, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Food Matching: Deliciously matched with risotto, sensuously truffled pasta. Ideal for flavoursome grills, lamb and beef.
Vinification: A hand-picked selection of the first ripest fruit, taken to the cellar and cool soaked prior to fermentation, then taken to new French oak barrels for 12 months. At this point a further selection takes place before blending and the final blend goes back to new barrels to marry and harmonise over the following 12 months. After almost 2 years languishing in a cool cellar the Gypsy is stable with the oak and intense fruit totally harmonised. A very concentrated, focussed blend, with layers of deep fruit.
