Jester Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 (12 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

Description:

Vintage

Unprecedented seasonal conditions have reduced yields to a 30 year low. e 2007 harvest commenced six weeks early. e major seasonal influence on the 2007 crop was the severe drought conditions experienced across much of the country however an episode of rain in mid January improved the situation for many growers by refreshing the vines. Winemakers report that many red varieties bunch numbers were near average, however there were fewer berries per bunch than usual and the berries were small. Quality is thought to be good to excellent. Absence of disease is a primary factor in this outcome. Conditions appear to be more favourable to reds with smaller red berry size traditionally associated with higher quality through intensification of flavour and colour.

Vinification

20% of the grapes were left to dry on 10 kg drying racks for 6 weeks and 5 days in the traditional Amarone manner to concentrate flavour. The fruit fo Jester was fermented on skins for 6 days at cool temperatures to enhance the pure fruit berry fruit. e wine was then pressed and underwent partial barrel fermentation. Natural malolactic fermentation occurred before the wine was racked.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Lifted peppery spice leads into an herbaceous mix of blackberries, currants and cloves. e partial Amarone method produces hints of liquorice, tar and leather whilst remaining fresh and vibrant. e youthful tannin structure will evolve over the next few years to become soft, supple and smooth.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For such a young winery, Mitolo’s history is rich. It’s one studded with success, wide acclaim, and – most importantly – truly memorable wines. But that’s only to be expected from a winery which, since the very first day, has been motivated by three potent words:

Purity. Elegance. Power.

Those were the guiding principles Frank Mitolo wrote down when he created the winery in 1999. With his Italian heritage and a family history of working the land, Frank was only interested in pursuing excellence. And the results were there immediately in the release of the first Mitolo wine - the 2000 G.A.M. - named after Frank’s children Gemma, Alexander and Marco.

Attracted by this commitment to only create wines of outstanding quality, acclaimed winemaker Ben Glaetzer joined Mitolo as a partner in 2001. With grapes sourced from two of Australia’s premier wine regions, Mclaren Vale and the Barossa Valley, Frank and Ben now work tirelessly to surpass their already impressive achievements. Mitolo Wines, praised by some of the world’s toughest critics, are now enjoyed in more than 20 countries around the world.

And that is just the start.
