Additional Information on Mitolo Vermentino Jester 2015

Winery: Mitolo

Varietal: Vermentino

Vermentino grapes are widely grown in many parts of Europe and the New World, and are especially associated with the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, where they make up a majority of the white wine grapes cultivated. Vermentino is highly popular with vintners, as they are very easy to grow and require little specialist attention. Indeed, the vines are famously vigorous, and resistant to disease, meaning that high yields of reliable quality are commonplace in Vermentino vineyards. The wines themselves are usually a pale straw yellow in color, and relatively light in body and alcohol content. They normally hold bright, fresh flavors of green apple and lime, and are much loved for their freshness and zingy, acidic crispness. As such, they are commonly served alongside seafood, and are a highly pleasant wine to drink outside on a sunny day.

Region: Fleurieu

On the Fleurieu Peninsula of southern Australia, there are now dozens of wineries making the most of the excellent unique features the region provides, and such wineries are consistently impressing the wine world with their excellent produce. Most notably, Fleurieu benefits from a Mediterranean style climate, offering great warmth and exposure to sunshine throughout the days, tempered by brisk oceanic breezes and a wide range of micro-climates, which allow vintners to produce a wide range of wine styles. As with many parts of southern Australia, the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varietals make up for most of the winery's produce, although recent years have seen much experimentation with a wide range of grapes, making Fleurieu one of the most diverse and exciting wine regions in Australia.

Country: Australia

Whilst every Australian state has some level of wine production, it is in South Australia and on the island of Tasmania where the finest wines are made to the highest quantities. Here, the scorching Australian sun is a little tamer, and the heat is tempered by brisk oceanic winds, making the climate of these regions ideal for vineyard cultivation. The Tamar Valley on Tasmania has been making waves internationally in recent years, as both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varietals are thriving there and resulting in hugely flavorful wines, which are at once distinctly Australian, yet remain unique and interesting enough to surprise and impress. Elsewhere in the country, the Syrah grape (known locally as Shiraz) reigns supreme, as the long, hot summers allow these grapes to ripen fully and lend their intensely fruit-forward character to the ruby red Australian wines, which have such international appeal.
