Ken Forrester The Gypsy Shiraz Grenache 2013 (1x75cl)

 
The Forrester red equivalent of the iconic FMC:  a stunning New World, red Rhone blend. 65% Grenache, 35% Syrah: a hand-picked selection of the finest and ripest fruit. 
 
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: 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 its intense fruit totally harmonised. The 2015 is a very concentrated, focussed blend, with layers of deep fruit.
 
The character is somewhat wild, a little brambly with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, dark spices, with vanilla scents and a distinct, concentrated red-fruit focus. Great for laying down and keeping for at least ten years but already rewarding if allowed to breathe in a decanter.

Deliciously matched with risotto, sensuously truffled pasta. Ideal for flavoursome grills, lamb and beef.
