Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine.

The Jester comes from the Willunga district at the southern end of McLaren Vale. Heavy grey loam soils over sandstone, intermixed by black Biscay clay, combine with a maritime climate, contributing to an even ripening period and the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe tannins. Shiraz grapes show excellent quality. Vines are husbanded to yield around four tonnes to the acre. Grapes are immediately crushed and fermented on skins at cooler temperatures to capture and enhance the bright, pure berry fruit. Components are pressed and treated to partial barrel ferments followed by a natural malolactic, matured eighteen months in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels.
Opaque dark crimson, deep dark hues. Dark chocolate, anise and all spice dominate the nose, fragrances of bright, vibrant, rich fruit. A revelation of blue and black berries, mocha and a hint of spice on the bouquet. Flavours of plum and liquorice with hints of blackberry and espresso. Exceptional balance, refinement and generousity of flavour, the palate exhibits focused, genuine fruit and subtle, yet structured, tannins in support of an elongated, velvety finish.
