Mitolo 2012 Jester Vermentino

This is a wine that just screams "summer fun". I really liked the bitter lemon and ultra-dry lime sherbet notes on the palate, the hyperactive crisp acidity and refreshingly dry finish. Crisp and fresh with just 11% alcohol, it's a perfect choice for lunchtime al fresco dining - and a brilliant partner for a seafood platter, fresh oysters or good old-fashioned fish and chips. There's a real purity to this McLaren Vale white (think a cold Alpine stream) but absolutely no shortage of flavour. A terrific unoaked wine for enjoying chilled - and while it still has all its youthful exuberance. $22. www.mitolowines.com.au.
