Mitolo Jester Cabernet Sauvignon
Description: Winemaker's 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 91pts
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."
