Pallid straw yellow in colour with light greenish in ection, Jester Vermentino shows classic minerality and texture. It presents fresh lifted fruit, withnotes of melon and citrus and a slightly spiced edge. Refreshing, balanced acidity rounds out to an elongated finish. Clean, grapefruit citrus flavours dominate with tropical undertones of melon. The palate is bright and fresh with a savoury, saline edge yet still a lovely soft, mouth filling quality and the faintest dusting of chalky structure that makes it the perfect wine to compliment salty seafood dishes.
In Italy, wine is not just about the drink, but about the occasion. It brings families and friends together to socialise and celebrate. Our Jester Vermentino is reminiscent of its Italian counterparts with fresh full flavours and a dry, savoury finish. Vermentino originally hails from the coastal regions of Tuscany and the island of Sardinia where fresh, textured white wine ideal for the Mediterranean climate is produced. Our Vermentino vineyard is located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 5km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga. The heavy clay here promotes strong growth in spring but in summer is dry and unforgiving. This creates vine stress leading to intense flavours. Mitolo Jester Vermentino is the perfect wine to share over a casual seafood lunch or at an outdoor summer celebration.
