Mitolo Jester Vermentino 2010
McLaren Vale based Mitolo is a family owned winery established in 1999 by Frank Mitolo. Mitolo's vision is to create individual, handcrafted premium wines built on passion and an uncompromising commitment to quality. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer became a partner in the business in 2001. The fusion of Frank's intimate knowledge of the land and business acumen and Ben's winemaking talent has resulted in the creation of one of Australia's most exciting wineries. Jester Vermentino is Mitolo's first white wine. Vermentino was chosen as a varietal that would suit the McLaren Vale region and sit well with the existing line up of wines. Vermentino is a varietal that matches well with food and also has strong links back to Italy, which is symbolic to Frank Mitolo's heritage. 2010 Vermentino displays classic minerality and texture. It shows fresh lifted fruit, with notes of melon and citrus and a slightly spiced edge. Refreshing, balanced acidity rounds out to an elongated finish.
