 Vibrant and juicy with flavours of black cherry and blood plums upfront, with nuances of clove spice, dark chocolate and salted liquorice in support. It is framed by delicate tannins and a redcurrant like acidity that delivers a satisfyingly long finish.

VINEYARD INFORMATION
Vineyard Notes
Located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 4km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga, the soil here is heavy grey loam mixed with black Biscay clay and sits above ancient Ngaltinga formation bedrock. Strong vine growth in spring is tempered by summers dry winds, developing pure, bright and savoury fruit flavours that are tempered by cooling afternoon sea breezes. VINE AGE: 20+ years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay
WINEMAKING & TECH INFORMATION
Winemaker Notes
Jester Shiraz fruit is crushed immediately after being delivered to us at the winery. We allow the skin and juice mix to warm naturally over a period of several days, after which it begins fermentation. The ferment is held cool, to retain the bright primary fruit characters which appear in the resulting wine. Following ferment, we carefully press the wine to separate it from the skins. The wine is then transferred into oak barrels where it stays for eighteen months before bottling. HARVEST DATE: March 2019 MATURATION: 100% used French Oak. 14 months. ALCOHOL (Alc/Vol): 14.5% RS: 0.5G/L pH: 3.39 TA: 6.7 g/L
