The Jester Shiraz is named after Richard Tarlton, who was a favourite amongst the Jesters to Queen Elizabeth I. The fruit for the wine is sourced from the Willunga district of McLaren Vale, where the heavy grey loam soils over sandstone, intermixed with black Biscay clay, combined with the maritime climate, contribute to an even ripening period and the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe tannins. Ageing takes place in a combination of 2-4 year old French oak (the same barrels in which Mitolo’s flagship GAM Shiraz is previously matured) for a period of 9 months.
Totally opaque black crimson red colour with very deep dark crimson red hue. The nose displays lifted scents of ripe blackberry, liquorice, blackpepper, confectionary and spice. Bold and richly textured the palate delivers very generous mouthfilling flavours of ripe blackberry and liquorice followed by some confectionary with a peppery back palate. The opulence of the fruit in conjunction with the velvety tannins result in a plush mouthfeel. Long blackberry, liquorice and blackpepper aftertaste.

Other Reviews….Dense purple-crimson; the wine is all about controlled power, the fist in a velvet glove; the medium- to full-bodied palate rolls black fruits, a touch of licorice and a generous dash of dark chocolate into a seamless whole; you know the tannins and oak are there, but no more.
