Heads up, folks. Here comes another Australian wine you never expected. Are you ready for Aussie Vermentino? When I recently met with winemaker Ben Glaetzer and winegrower Frank Mitolo to preview the coming vintages of their Mitolo and Jester wines, they brought the standard Cabernet, Shiraz and Rhône blends. Those wines were good, as usual, and instructive about the vagaries of recent vintages in McLaren Vale, where they grow most of their grapes. But the wine that intrigued me the most was the new Vermentino, coming out later this year on the Jester label.
