Due to extreme weather the McLaren Vale suffered low grape yields in 2014, however the wine quality was excellent! 20% of the fruit is dried in the Amarone manner, adding soft tannins, juicy fruit and mouth-filling textures to the wine. This is ready to drink, but could be held for a couple of years.

Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Jester offers classic menthol and cassis notes with a touch of pencil shavings. Medium-bodied with a lively backbone of crisp acidity and soft tannins, it fills the palate with uncomplicated black fruit preserves notes and finishes with an herbal lift.

Rating : 86/100

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale (South Australia) is deep garnet colour.

The nose is open and full aromas of bramble berries, cooked dark fruit, bellpepper, hint of spices.

The palate is full bodied with some smooth tannins. Nice plum and cacao flavour to finish.

Food and wine matching: Beef, Duck with blackberries, Strong hard cheeses

Great alternative of Amarone (Italian wine from Veneto) with a great value for money.
