WINE: MITOLO ‘Jester’ Shiraz 2005

Type: Red
Origin: McLaren Vale, South Australia
Approx Cost: $25

Purchased at the very last moment to fill a mixed dozen. I was hesitant and clueless.

But Wow! What a meaty wine! A lot of blackcurrant, star anise and juicy berries. A punch on the finish with a lot of fine tannins. It feels like you’re eating, not drinking.

Not everyone will like this style, but it’s just what I look for in a shiraz.

I've sold a lot of this wine but I've never tried it. Sounds fairly typical of mclaren vale shiraz.

nice one.

From what I've tried of other McLaren Vale's you're pretty close to the mark.
