Mitolo Jester Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale

Monarcho was the most eccentric of all Jesters in the court of Elizabeth I. He was the only fool named by Shakespeare in any of his works and featured in “Loves Labour Lost”. Italian born, the usually blue attired Monarcho was more intelligent and politically aware than his court persona. After starring as the fool for six years, he retired in 1575 and died shortly after in 1580.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is made with 20% of its fruit being air dried. Grapes are handpicked into small crates and dried for up to 8 weeks before crushing. This process creates a complex and structured wine with silky tannins and a deep concentrated palate.
