Made by the very talented winemaker Ben Glaezter 

Robert M. Parker Jnr chose Ben as his Wine Personality of the Year 2005. Parker said: "When I look at the winemaker behind some of my favourite Australian wines, the name Ben Glaetzer seems to come up frequently. From a winemaking family dating back to the late 19th century, he has shown an exquisite talent for accessing fabulous vineyards and turning out world class wines from old-vine Shiraz and Grenache. This is a serious talent who has exploded on the wine scene with a brilliant array of wines".

Professional Reviews

90/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2002 Shiraz The Jester is an exuberant, fun-styled effort . Aged in a combination of neutral French and American oak, it exhibits exemplary ripeness, tremendous fruit, loads of blackberry and cassis characteristics, a hint of licorice, and subtle wood and earth in the background. A fruit-forward Shiraz.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



90/100
Wine Companion
A complex mix of blackberry, spice, earth and dark chocolate; savoury tannins to finish; very different style.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2004



85/100
Wine Spectator
Lithe, refined style delivers a range of dusty berry, pepper and dried herb flavors on a lean, firm frame.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 15 2004



16/20
Jancis Robinson
Bright crimson. Very concentrated and deep. Rather Cabernet-like with its leafy scent. Backbone and aroma. Salty undertow, very Australian (cf Directors' Cut). Still very chewy and tannins a bit grainy. Lots of tar and minerality.
JR, Jancis Robinson Issue: Jan 2006
