Monarcho was the most eccentric of all jesters at the court of Elizabeth I. He was the only fool ever named by Shakespeare and is featured in Loves Labour Lost. The blue attired Monarcho was more intelligent and politically aware than his behaviour suggested. A fifth of fruit in Jester Cabernet has been treated to the painstaking Amarone technique, drying grapes on open racks to concentrate flavour and soften the tannins. Jester is upfront and approachable for early appreciation, an accessible, mouth filling Cabernet wine.
From the Willunga precinct of McLaren Vale, where the evenly ripening Shiraz develops exemplary flavours and tannins. Jester is upfront in style and approachable, an earlier drinking wine for immediate appreciation. Crafted to an ancient unique process, a component of the grapes are left to dry on ten kilogram drying racks for several weeks in the traditional Amarone manner to concentrate flavour. The fruit is fermented on skins for six days at cool temperatures to enhance the pure berry fruit. Jester is then pressed and treated to partial barrel fermentation, followed by a natural malolactic before racking and a spell of maturation in a selection of well seasoned French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Deep crimson with brick red hues. Lifted peppery spice leads into an herbaceous mix of blackberries, currants and clove. Bright, lush and juicy, Jester shows a full bodied palate endowed by mouth filling richness. The Amarone treatment contributes hints of liquorice, tar and leather whilst remaining fresh and vibrant. Youthful tannin structure, soft, supple and smooth, a match to moussaka, osso buco or lasagna.

About Mitolo Wines
It was the vision of Frank and Simone Mitolo to create individual and handcrafted wines, made with passion and an uncompromising commitment to quality
Frank‚Äôs Italian heritage provided him with an early introduction to wine appreciation and winemaking, while his roots are rich in horticultural history spanning three generations. With the active involvement and support of his wife Simone and their children Gemma, Alexander and Marco being their inspiration, their first wine G.A.M., a 2000 McLaren Vale Shiraz was produced.
