Case of Ken Forrester The Gypsy
2015 will no doubt go down as one of the greatest South African red wine vintages of all time. The Gypsy 2015 is no different!
Low yields with small, concentrated berries resulted in a limited production of a little over 1500 bottles. Almost 3 years of barrel ageing before making up the final blend, only to bottle the wine and allow it an additional 2 years of bottle age.
The character is expectedly somewhat “wild”, a little brambly with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, dark spices, with vanilla scents and a distinct, concentrated red-fruit focus.
A very concentrated, focussed blend with layers of deep fruit. Great for laying down and keeping for at least ten years but already rewarding if allowed to breathe in a decanter.
