Mitolo often refer to Jester Shiraz as their 'baby GAM' given it utilises the same barrel in which their flagship Mitolo GAM Shiraz was previously aged in.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The Jesters of the Courts of Europe had one motivation, to entertain the household of a nobleman and his guests. The Jester, a modern day entertainer, is exactly that. Able to excite and tell stories at any dinner table, he is the life of the party. He waivers from fits of laughter, to being somewhat risqué and suggestive. Ultimately, he is there to remind us not to take life too seriously. He gathers friends around regularly to eat and drink well, as he of course is the instigator of such frivolity. We all know a modern day Jester, and to them, the life of the party, we salute the Jester in you.

A lot of love goes into our wines, and our Jester Shiraz is no exception. The vineyards for the Jester Shiraz are located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, close to the seaside town of Aldinga. The combination of cool sea breezes and gully winds provide ideal conditions for growing fruit of intensity and balance. The vines sit in heavy clay, which gives the wine powerful dark fruit flavours. Ideal conditions in 2015 produced an exceptional Shiraz that speaks of its origin. Full flavoured, with dark fruits and savoury black olive characters, and soft, silky tannins.

Bright, lifted and aromatic, with raspberry and choc mint characters. Full flavoured and elegant, with dark fruit flavours of plum and blackberry, complemented by dark chocolate, liquorice and white pepper spice."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Gorgeous aromas of blackberry, plum jam, chocolate tart, hazelnut and mixed spice lead to a concentrated and sumptuous palate that is velvety and flavoursome. The wine offers terrific fruit richness and generosity, while remaining firmly structured and beautifully balanced. Opulent and gratifying. At its best: now to 2022."
92/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion , March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"All things bright and beautiful, all things McLaren Vale shiraz. Blackberry, plum, dark chocolate and milky oak all flow across the bouquet and medium-bodied palate. It's not a great wine per se, but it's at the heart of traditional McLaren Vale style. If it had been picked that little bit earlier... Drink By:
2030."
