A fifth of fruit in Jester Cabernet has been treated to the painstaking Amarone technique, drying grapes on open racks to concentrate flavour and soften the tannins. Jester is upfront and approachable for early appreciation, an accessible, mouth filling Cabernet wine.

From the Willunga precinct of McLaren Vale, where the evenly ripening Shiraz develops exemplary flavours and tannins. Jester is upfront in style and approachable, an earlier drinking wine for immediate appreciation. Crafted to an ancient unique process, a component of the grapes are left to dry on ten kilogram drying racks for several weeks in the traditional Amarone manner to concentrate flavour. The fruit is fermented on skins for six days at cool temperatures to enhance the pure berry fruit. Jester is then pressed and treated to partial barrel fermentation, followed by a natural malolactic before racking and a spell of maturation in a selection of well seasoned French oak barrels.
Deep crimson with brick red hues. Lifted peppery spice leads into an herbaceous mix of blackberries, currants and clove. Bright, lush and juicy, Jester shows a full bodied palate endowed by mouth filling richness. The Amarone treatment contributes hints of liquorice, tar and leather whilst remaining fresh and vibrant. Youthful tannin structure, soft, supple and smooth, a match to moussaka, osso buco or lasagna.
