Additional Information on Mitolo Vermentino Jester 2015

Winery: Mitolo

Varietal: Vermentino

Vermentino grapes are thought to have originated in Spain, and this white wine varietal is still grown in small quantities on Spanish land. However, it quickly moved eastwards to Italy, and found a new home in the warm and sunny Mediterranean climate there, where it became highly popular due to its hardiness and resistance to rot. Today, it is most closely associated with the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, where it is widely grown and used for producing both fine white wines and table wines, prized for their freshness and acidity. Vermentino wines tend to be rather light in body and low in alcohol, which allows their crispness and acidic nature to come forward, and their flavors of lime and green apple to shine.

Region: Fleurieu

The Fleurieu Peninsula in southern Australia has been gaining a lot of international attention in recent years due to the wide range of excellent grape varietals which are currently flourishing there, and resulting in superb wines. The Mediterranean style climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly and fully, and express the many features of the excellent terroir which typifies the area. The variation in geological features of the peninsula is one of the key reasons why the wines from Fleurieu vary so greatly, and vintners in the region delight in experimenting with the micro-climates which make up the island's unique features. Today, the region mainly produces Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon wines of great character, although there are many varietals currently being grown there very successfully.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
