ICON RANGE

We have our single parcel vines, where an older, special vineyard like a small postage stamp on the map, produces exceptional fruit and extremely low yields and here we attempt to make a statement of purity, intensity, complex concentration of fruit and elegant balance. Destined to be limited by provenance and finally after barrel aging we only select the very best individual barrels to go into bottle, ensuring a unique superlative wine, justifiably the pinnacle of our efforts.

Ken Forrester The Gypsy 2015

R620

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.

A very concentrated, focused blend with layers of deep fruit.

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.

TASTING NOTES
A very concentrated, focussed blend with layers of deep fruit.

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. Great for laying down and keeping for at least ten years but already rewarding if allowed to breathe in a decanter.

65% Grenache / 35% Syrah
Region: Western Cape
Soil: Grenache from decomposed granite at
450m. Shiraz from ancient gravels onto clay
