Mitolo Jester Shiraz

Mitolo Jester Shiraz

Mitolo Jester Shiraz – Dark red with a brooding fruit profile of plum, blackcurrant and olive, with a slight herbal lift. Full flavoured, soft and generous with dark fruit flavours of plum and blackberry. Bright acidity gives the wine a great energy, a real hallmark of this vintage and leads to a long, savoury finish.

Mitolo

“Mitolo, founded in 1999 (2000 was their first vintage) has in a very short space of time become one of Australia’s hottest wineries. It has been lauded by the press, with James Halliday saying that ‘Frank Mitolo has methodically covered every aspect of high-quality winemaking”¦’ and Huon Hooke commenting that the Mitolo wines ‘”¦are genuinely low-yield, majority old-vine, handmade wines of real concentration and opulence”¦to put it simply, the wines are great.’
Frank Mitolo’s partner is winemaker Ben Glaetzer, who was recently awarded the 2004 Qantas Medal for Young Australian Winemaker of the Year. Ben is obsessed with quality. ‘We pick all the grapes into small bins, pick on flavour rather than analysis and use about 80% French oak.’”

South Australia

The McLaren Vale is predominately a red wine region, producing some of the best red wines in South Australia. Vineyards were first planted in the mid 1800s. One of the early pioneers Thomas Hardy established a business that evolved to BRL Hardy, one of the largest wine companies in the country. The region also has a healthy number of boutique wineries that consistently make fine wines and experiment with different wine styles. The climate is warm to hot with dry summers, and benefits from cooling breezes from the St Vincent Gulf. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz (rich, ripe & generous), Cabernet Sauvignon; White – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc.
