Black Gypsy is made from the Venus grape. It is a beautiful salmon colored wine sweetened to a medium sweetness with fruit forward aromas of plum, persimmon, and grapefruit over a balanced palate with flavors of plum, citrus, and a candy like flavor of red berries.
Black Gypsy is made with Mitas Hill Venus grapes. This wine is unique to Mitas Hill. Mitas Hill may be the only vineyard in Texas growing this grape. It is a hybrid grape, giving it its unique aromas. This is a fruit forward wine sweetened to medium sweetness, making it a good wine for the casual sweet wine drinker without being overly sweet, and also a good aperitif. You can make a great Sangria with this wine by adding fruit, and letting the flavors mingle overnight. We do not age this wine, and it is bottled 3 months after harvest. This wine should be enjoyed within a year of purchase, and not bottle aged. Black Gypsy is best enjoyed chilled, and soon after purchase.
