Jester Vermentino - 2020

Best Vermentino
2020 McLaren Vale Wine Show

2020 Royal Adelaide Wine Show

The Mitolo/Glaetzer/Lopestri team is a pioneer of vermentino, this now their 11th release. The variety loves the southern McLaren Vale, thrives in the heat in summer, loves the cool Gulf breezes in the afternoon, retains its vital grape acidity and freshness, and comes up all zingy and tangy with grapefruit and tropical fruit salad flavours in abundance as well as delivering a smart, pithy, chalky mouthfeel to finish. Terrific with cheese and seafood.
Tony Love, November 2020

Bright and fresh, the elegantly fragrant bouquet shows nectarine, green rockmelon, jasmine and white floral aromas, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that delivers pristine fruit flavours together with fine texture and crisp acidity. Juicy and delightfully drinkable.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit. December 2020

There’s an in-built lushness to the texture here. It fits very well with the fruit-forward, exuberant style of the wine. It’s a fruit salad style but the energy and mouthfeel elevate it. In short, it works a treat.
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front. October 2020
