Bright, lush and juicy, Mitolo's Jester Cabernet Sauvignon shows a full bodied palate and mouth filling richness. 20% of the Cabernet fruit is handled in the Amarone manner - a technique of drying fruit which adds complexity and fullness to the wine and produces soft juicy tannins albeit a grainy textured finish.
This full-bodied and juicy red offers approachable notes of ripe red and dark fruits along with hints of smoke and graphite.
The vineyards are located in the Willunga district in the southern end of McLaren Vale and are planted to a mix of clay and heavy grey loam soil over sandstone. A bright and lush wine, 20% of the fruit was vinified in the Amarone method to concentrate flavor. After six weeks, the dried fruit was fermented on its skins for six days, pressed and fermented in oak and stainless steel, the wine was racked just once.
