Mitolo Jester Cabernet 2018
Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $25.00
This is a very unusual Aussie Cab in as much as 20% of the fruit is air dried for a couple of months to increase fruit concentration and depth of flavour. We found tobacco, herbs, chocolate, plum and cassis. The intensity of flavour is superb. An excellent wine and great value for money.
The Mitolos arrived in Oz in the 1950s, ex the Abruzzo winemaking region of Italy and began market gardening. Later Frank started making wine for family and friends to drink. That was humming along until a quick chat turned into a 5-hour discussion with legendary winemaker Ben Glaetzer, culminating in a 6-word business plan written on a napkin – ‘Individuality, integrity, quality, purity, elegance and power’. Grapes are sourced from family friends and exceptional growers, the Loprestis. Power comes from the heavy clay soils, elegance thanks to the gentle afternoon sea breezes. This inherent complexity ties in neatly with the business plan and winery motto, originally from Abruzzo, ‘Forte a Gentile: strong and gentle.’
