Palate Profile

A pretty lift of violet, cut plum and mulberries, with subtle hints of mint and crushed rock. Vibrant and juicy with flavors of black cherry and blood plums upfront, with nuances of clove spice, dark chocolate and salted liquorice in support. It is framed by delicate tannins and a redcurrant like acidity that delivers a satisfyingly long finish.

In a short period of time Mitolo has become recognized as one of the finest producers in McLaren Vale and all of Austrlaia. Mitolo is a family owned business, started and led by Frank Mitolo and his vision of harnessing his Italian heritage to create a range of wines of individuality, integrity and utmost quality.

Critic Awards

Enticing aromas of blackberry, dark plum, cedary oak and violet with a hint of cake spice on the nose. It’s concentrated and flavoursome on the palate, displaying excellent fruit purity and persistency. Harmonious, generous and immensely appealing.

A really smart vintage for this wine, it not only carries impressive intensity but there is also plenty of detail thrown in too making for a solid McLaren Vale offering. It is dark ruby in colour and shows your classic shiraz mulberry and dark berry fruits. What I like most is the savoury edges – black pepper and tobacco aromas with old oak sitting in the background. In the mouth it’s chunky and fleshy with ripe dark fruits plus some chewy tannins to give that complete McLaren Vale experience.

The 2019 Shiraz Jester is one of the standouts in the Jester lineup, It’s a complex, complete wine offering medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of ripe blackberries, smoked game, pepper, and hints of eucalyptus. Nicely balanced, with ripe tannins and a good sense of freshness, it's well worth buying.

Dark purple. Spicy and expansive on the nose, displaying scents of blackberry, cherry, vanilla and lavender and a touch of smokiness. Tightly focused dark berry flavours are complicated by floral and oak spice notes that deepen through the back half. Finishes sappy and long, with gently gripping tannins coming in late.

Fermented in open-top vessels slowly at low temperature to accentuate fruit. Matured in mix of used French (60%) and American (40%) oak for 6–8 months. Full bodied and to type: black cherry, boysenberry, plum, anise, mocha/vanilla oak scents and a splay of pepper grind across the seamless finish.
