Ken Forrester The Gypsy Shiraz Grenache 2014 (1x75cl)

See our Ken Forrester tasting blog for details of this wine in action.

The Forrester red equivalent of the iconic FMC Chenin: 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 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.

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.
