Discover More About Our Products

The Jester Cabernet Sauvignon comprises 20% Amarone fruit, dried for approximately 7-8 weeks, following the Italian appassimento technique of drying grapes on racks. The vineyards 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 on heavy clay, which gives the wine powerful fruit flavours. Best shared with family and friends, this is a Cabernet with great personality and generosity.

What's behind the name? The Jesters of the Courts of Europe had one motivation, to entertain a nobleman's household and their guests. The Jester, a modern day entertainer, is exactly that. Able to excite and tell stories at any dinner table, they are the life of the party. Ultimately, they are there to remind us not to take life too seriously. They gather friends around regularly to eat and drink well, as they of course are the instigator of such frivolity. We all know a modern day Jester, and to them, the life of the party, we salute the Jester in you.

Elaboration of Mitolo Jester Mclaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Mitolo Jester Mclaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Cabernet Sauvignon)

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Deep purple
  • Nose: Complex array of aromas. It opens with scents of tobacco, dried herbs, crushed rock and dark chocolate. Time in glass unfurls hints of cassis and black plum.
  • Mouth: Lovely palate weight and texture. Medium-bodied with succulent blackcurrant, black cherry and earthy characteristics. Juicy acidity complements the savoury dusty tannins.

APPELLATION: McLaren Vale

VINEYARD: Mitolo Wines

AGEING: 100% used French Oak. 14 months.

GRAPES: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

PREPARATION: Twenty per cent of the fruit is dried using the ancient Italian Appassimento technique prior to fermentation, for approximately 7-8 weeks. The remaining grapes are fermented on skins for six to ten days, at cool temperatures to enhance pure berry fruit. Aside from producing a wine with a complete framework of tannin and intense fruit characteristics, this process adds a beautiful sensuous plushness to the mid-palate.

PAIRING: roast lamb or aubergine

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE:

ALCOHOL: 14.5

Röda fruktaromer. Jag gillade surhetsgraden hos denna 2018.
Jag vet inte om denna 2018 eller årgången är det bästa jag har provat.

Vinho especial para casais.
Tinha uma cor muito apagada. Aromas a compota de frutos vermelhos. Sente-se um sabor a framboesa e morango.
O vinho melhorou a refeição.

Ideell å drikke under en romantisk middag..
Kirsebær farge med brun kant. Ristet aroma. Jeg vet ikke om det er druen, men Cabernet Sauvignon smakte oksidert.
Vi drakk den som den var, uten mat.

4/5

We paired it with a wide range of tapas. I drank it with a business client.
Red with violet nuances. The smell was strong and I liked it. The best aftertaste of South Australia.
