Winemaker's Notes:

The second label to Ken Forrester's "The Gypsy," this elegant Rhone blend perfectly merges Old World style with New World fruit. Grenache's juicy red fruit and earthy rustic character combines with Shiraz's pepper and spice notes, offering a balanced finish with soft, integrated tannins.

Blend: 45% Shiraz, 44% Grenache, 11% Mourvedre

About Ken Forrester:

In 1993, hospitality industry veteran Ken Forrester and his wife Teresa purchased the historic Scholtzenhof estate, nestled at the base of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch. Originally established in 1689 as Zandberg, the property is one of the oldest wine farms in the Cape. Ken enlisted the help of his winemaker friend Martin Meinert in replanting and revitalizing the vineyards, with an aim to craft a white wine that could rival any in the world! And so it was that Ken Forrester Vineyards was established, with a focus on Chenin Blanc production.
