Editorial Reviews for Mitolo Shiraz Jester Mclaren Vale
Pretty intense on the nose with a classic array of grilled meat, pepper, spice, blackberry and plum, with a touch of a coffee top note. Just a bit thick on the palate, yet showing both density and freshness. This is a touch sweet with rich blackberry flavors that are a touch jammy, backed up by notes of grilled beef, pepper, vanilla and some nice astringent apple peel notes. The finish is a bit short, though brisk and clean, with attractive floral and plummy inner mouth aromatics and a long spice/cocoa note on the finale. Quintessential Shiraz. 92 pts
Deep blackberry fruit flavors, lots of cedar, brown sugar, and syrupy sweet aromas. Zesty acidity, black pepper, chewy tannins and a thick tar and dark chocolate finish. Very nice!
For me this is an avalanche of sweet fruit, and is a little unbalanced.. I am not getting the Aussie Shiraz 'peppery bite' at the end that gives it a needed touch of complexity. Have got a half case of this after having it at Viraswamy with a buffet Asian lunch where it seemed excellent. Am going to save it for well spiced meals where I think it will drink really well.

Enjoyed this with a cold duck salad in Dublin. Wonderful blackcurranty, peppery notes with a liquorice edge to it.
A nice spicy cab Aussie style. Good blending of flavors. Nicely put together.
Yummy Shiraz. Great Now and even better if you can keep your hands off it for a few years. Big Fruit, High Alcohol, Warning: this is serious wine for serious enjoyment. Also, comes with a screw top. Great for sneaking into movies, dinners parties, beach parties, pool parties where hosts don't anything drinkable.
External Reviews for Mitolo Shiraz Jester Mclaren Vale
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 Jester Shiraz has notes of kirsch, warm blackberries and baking spices with hints of vanilla, anise and tree bark. Full-bodied and with plenty of spicy fruit, it has a medium level of velvety tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drinking now, it should keep to 2016+.
Bright purple. Lively aromas of blackberry, cassis and spices. Spicy, bright and very fruity, with good energy to its dark berry flavors. This is far from a stereotypical Aussie shiraz. Finishes with smooth, gentle tannins and lingering spiciness. Offers considerable upfront appeal.
Opaque dark crimson color with deep black crimson hue Blackberry, licorice and dark plums. Displays abundant flavors of licorice, blackberry and dark fruits. Exceptional balance, refinement and generosity of flavor.
Medium-weighted aromas of stewed fruit and Bing cherry offer a perfect interplay with notes of smoke and bacon. Complex and enticing, the bouquet maintains its mixture of fruit and spicy, savoury notes at it opens up. The forward and fruity palate ha... Chuck Hayward. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2009 Mitolo Shiraz Jester 750ml
A savory style, offering toasty mineral and licorice flavors that wrap tightly around dark berry at the core, finishing lithe and focused.

90 points Rhone Report: The 2010 Mitolo Shiraz Jester is a classy, complex Shiraz that delivers quality aromas of juicy blackberry style fruit, tobacco leaf, menthol, pepper, and earth to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich and fruit filled palate. Upfront, very well balanced, and with a delicious, easygoing feel, this is an outstanding value that should be enjoyed over the coming 4-6 years. (Jun 2012)
