Mitolo ‘Jester’ McLaren Vale Shiraz 2012

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 25-Nov-2014
Very full, near impenetrable black-red colour, youthful in appearance. This has a fresh and vibrantly ripe nose with aromatic black berry fruits along with black pepper, liquorice, Asian spices and a black floral lift. Full-bodied, sweet and lusciously juicy, ripe blackberry and plum fruit flavours are enriched with plum and boysenberry notes. Layers of liquorice and spices unfold, filling the mouth. The wine is lively and vibrant, and the fruit is underlined by fine-grained tannins. The fruit sweetness remains the feature on the palate, carrying through to a strong, warm finish. This is a sweet and juicy, ripe Shiraz with blackberry and plummy fruits and fine structure. Match with Middle Eastern lamb dishes over the next 6-8 years. Fruit from near Aldinga, southern McLaren Vale fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 10% new oak barrels. 18.5/20 Nov 2014 RRP $31.99
