Mitolo is a family owned winery established in 1999 by Frank Mitolo.
Mitolo’s vision is to create individual, handcrafted premium wines built on passion and an uncompromising commitment to quality. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer became a partner in the business in 2001. The fusion of Frank’s intimate knowledge of the land and business acumen with Ben’s winemaking talent has led to the creation of one of Australia’s most exciting wineries.
Shiraz fruit for the Jester was crushed immediately after delivery to the winery. The skin and juice mix was allowed to warm naturally over several days after which it began fermentation. Fermentation was at cool temperatures, helping to retain bright primary fruit characters in the wine. Following this, the wines were carefully pressed, separating them from the skins. The wine was then run down to oak barrels (10% new, 90% second or third use) for 18 months for maturation, before being blended and bottled.
Deep, dark red. Pure and unobstructed by new oak, the nose is lifted with dark fruit flavours of blackberry, mint chocolate and anise. Notes of white pepper spice, vanilla, and black olive tapenade provide an intriguing savoury counterpoint to the more primary fruit characters. The palate is concentrated with a luscious texture and packed with fresh blackberry, dark chocolate and liquorice flavours. The wine is juicy and plush with silky tannins that linger, providing a drying, savoury finish.
