Jester Cabernet Sauvignon, Mitolo
McLaren Vale-based Mitolo is a family-owned winery established in 1999 by Frank Mitolo, whose Italian roots inspired his early interest in, and enthusiasm for, good food and great wine. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer became a partner in the business in 2001. The fusion of Frank’s knowledge of the land and business acumen with Ben’s winemaking talent has resulted in Mitolo becoming one of Australia’s most awarded wineries. Mitolo has made a name for itself as one of the Australian producers to watch.
The Jester Cabernet Sauvignon uses grapes that were dried for about five weeks after harvesting. This period of ‘appassimento’ gives the wine a dried fruit yet vibrant character that ensures its intensity is nicely balanced. A seriously impressive wine for the price.
Intense and rich, this is a good wine to cope with all the flavours a bbq has to offer, especially a big chargrilled ribeye!
