Ken Forrester Three Halves 2013

Ken Forrester Three Halves 2013

Mourvèdre (earthy) with a splash of Grenache (fruity) here and a dash of Shiraz (spicy) there was blended to create this incredible wine. The overriding requirement being that the blend of the “three halves” has to be greater than the sum of the parts..
