Buy Mitolo Shiraz Jester
Wine Advocate 89 points - Deep garnet with a hint of purple to the color, the 2012 Jester Shiraz displays pronounced nose redolent of spice cake, cinnamon stick and preserved plums with underlying blackberry compote and star anise nuances. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of warm blackberry and baking spice flavors on offer in the mouth, the flesh is nicely framed with a medium level of velvety tannins and refreshing acid. It finishes with good persistence. Drink it now to 2017+. (Feb 2014)

"Deep cherry jube in colour, the 2009 Jester Shiraz continues to show bright, vibrant, rich fruit. A revelation of blue and black berries, there is mocha and a hint of spice on the nose. The palate exhibits focused, genuine fruit and subtle, yet structured, tannins support a velvety elongated finish."
Other text
Richard Tarlton was favourite among jesters to Queen Elizabeth I. Tarlton was the first to achieve national celebrity as a comedian and enjoyed a successful career in theatre as a leading member of the Queen's Players. As a writer, he was the author of popular ballads and plays. With Tarlton Shiraz, 'Jester' celebrates the era where boredom was alleviated through humour and the banal through intellect.

Producer
With a background in horticulture (as owner of one of the largest potato and onion producers in the Southern Hemisphere) and a keen interest in wine and winemaking, Frank Mitolo set out to create his own winery. He toyed with small-scale winemaking for six years before deciding to produce commercially and in 2000 formed Mitolo Wines.

Frank teamed with his friend, Ben Glaetzer (who makes wines under the well regarded Glaetzer Wines label), with the implicit goal of creating the very best interpretation of McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley Shiraz. Together, they agreed on an approach that relies on using the very best fruit, non-interventionist wine making and super fine oak.

This collaboration resulted in Mitolo's first wine, 2000 GAM McLaren Vale Shiraz. This wine received 91 points in the Wine Spectator in its first year of release.

In 2001 the Mitolo portfolio was expanded to three McLaren Vale wines, Jester, GAM and Savitar and one Barossa Valley wine, Reiver. In 2002, Frank and Ben decided to push the boundaries by producing an amarone style Cabernet called Serpico.
