Winemaker Notes

Bright, lush and juicy, Jester Cabernet Sauvignon shows a full-bodied palate and mouth-filling richness. 20% of the fruit has been handled in the Amarone manner. This technique of drying fruit adds complexity and fullness and produces soft juicy tannins. Jester Cabernet is upfront and approachable for early appreciation, delivering excellent quality for the price.

Critical Acclaim

JH 91
Australian Wine Companion
20% of the grapes used in this estate-grown wine are dried for 6-8 weeks prior to fermentation, the remainder cool-fermented on skins for 6-10 days; the wine spends 10 months in used oak. As one might expect, this has a major impact on the wine, but whether its entirely beneficial is a moot point, the desiccated fruit nuances tending to break the line of the palate. Still, the wine is interesting.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Smooth, expressive and generous, offering a cascade of ripe black cherry and blackberry, with hints of tarragon and mint around the edges, flowing smoothly into a long finish.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Plummy and meaty, this Cabernet is a bold, mouthfilling trip from start to finish. It’s certainly not shy, boasting crisp acids and firm tannins to support the big fruit flavors. Drink now with a rare steak, or hold up to 10 years.

Mitolo
In a short period of time Mitolo has become recognized as one of the finest producers in McLaren Vale. Mitolo is a family owned business, started by and led by the founder and owner Frank Mitolo's vision to create a range of wines of individuality, integrity and utmost quality. Whether it is in the vineyard, or in the winery, or the work of the different coopers who source and shape the diverse barrels which are used at Mitolo, each wine is nurtured and developed with a zealous passion that spares no effort to ensure that the best of everything is brought together to make wines of purity, elegance and power.

Italian family roots inspired Frank's early interest and enthusiasm for good food and great wine. With three earlier generations of his family working as agriculturists and entrepreneurs, it is not surprising that (while heading an international horticultural business), Frank found the energy and passion to pursue his dream of creating world-class wines. The business was established in 1999 and a year later the first Mitolo wine was launched. It was called G.A.M.; named after Frank’s three children and the next generation of Mitolo’s, Gemma, Alexander and Marco.

Acclaimed winemaker Ben Glaetzer is a partner in the business and the combination of his winemaking skills and Frank’s vision have led Mitolo to international recognition and acclaim. What started out as a dream is becoming an exciting reality, and Mitolo Wines has only just begun on its journey.
