Mitolo Jester Malbec 2021


This wine, from a vineyard in the Sellicks Road sub-region of McLaren Vale, spent 14 months in a combination of 60% French and 40% American oak hogsheads. An opaque purple, there is dense fruit here with notes of blackberries, mulberries, chocolate and mocha. Big and bold and as we move to the palate, notes of plums, bay leaves and aniseed begin to emerge. A fine line of bright acidity, slightly firm tannins, good focus with concentration, drive, and length. The wine maintains its intensity for the full journey of this really good value Malbec.
