Jester Shiraz 2013 (12 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

Description:

Origin

A lot of love goes into our wines, and our Jester Shiraz is no exception. We affectionately refer to our Jester Shiraz as our ‘baby G.A.M.’ - reusing the same oak barrels in which our G.A.M. Shiraz was previously aged. The vineyards for the Jester Shiraz are located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, close to the seaside town of Aldinga. The combination of cool sea breezes and gully winds provide ideal conditions for growing fruit of

intensity and balance. The vines sit in heavy clay, which gives the wine powerful fruit flavours. In 2012 ideal conditions over the growing season produced a fantastic wine that speaks of its origin. The wine is full flavoured, with dark fruits and savoury black olive characters, and soft, silky tannins.

Creation

The 2013 vintage was a great one for us in McLaren Vale, producing deeply flavoured wines with great

energy. The Shiraz fruit for our Jester wine is crushed immediately after being delivered to us at the winery. We allow the skin and juice mix to warm naturally over a period of several days, after which it begins fermentation. The ferment is held cool, to retain the bright primary fruit characters which appear in the resulting wine. Following ferment we carefully press the wine to separate it from the skins. The wine is then transferred into oak barrels (10% new for this vintage) where it stays for eighteen months before it hits the bottle, and then our family and friends tables.

All of our Jester wines are named after Jesters of the 15th and 16th Century. For this wine, we chose a Jester who, like the wine, is often a favourite amongst its peers. Richard Tarlton drew significant attention as a favourite amongst the Jesters of Queen Elizabeth 1. Tarlton, the first to achieve national celebrity as a comedian, also boasted a successful career in the theatre as a leading member of the Queen’s Players. He

dabbled as a writer, and published a number of popular ballads and plays. The talented Jester was a complex and colourful character, much like our Jester wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Deep, dark red

Nose

Pure and unobstructed by new oak, the nose is lifted with dark fruit flavours of blackberry, chocmint, and anise. Dustings of white pepper spice, vanilla, and black olive tapenade provide an intriguing savoury counterpoint to the more primary fruit characters.

Palate

The palate is concentrated with a luscious rolling texture and packed with fresh blackberry, dark chocolate

and liquorice flavours. The wine is juicy and plush with silky tannins that linger, providing a drying, savoury finish.

Food Pair

Bistecca alla Fiorentina cooked over charcoal

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.
