Winemaker's Notes
"Medium weight again a reflection of a cooler year with delicate flavours of red berries, cassis, liquorice and dried herbs. The structure is slightly more savoury than normal which will suit food nicely. 20% of the fruit has been handled in the Amarone manner- this technique of drying fruit adds complexity and fullness and produces soft juicy tannins. Jester Cabernet is upfront and approachable for early appreciation, delivering excellent quality for the price."

Technical Notes
"20% of the grapes were left on 10kg drying racks for 5 weeks and 2 days, in the traditional Amarone manner, to concentrate flavour. The fruit for Jester was fermented on skins for 6 days, at cool and warm temperatures, to enhance pure berry fruit. The wine was then pressed and underwent partial barrel fermentation. Natural malolactic fermentation occurred before the wine was racked. 14.5% alc."
