The 2020 vintage for Mate’s Vineyard was truly remarkable. They have seen some fine wines from this vineyard in the last 30 years but 2020 is the pinnacle of what they have achieved so far. Mate’s Vineyard is always the last site we pick each year. In 2020 the grapes certainly had the distinctive Mendoza millerandage, giving many small berries along with the normal sized ones, and as a result a wonderfully concentrated palate texture and fruit richness. Although still somewhat shy on the nose, with bottle age the full palette of complex aromas and bouquet of this wonderful wine will be gradually and seductively revealed. Pairs well with seafood, pasta, chicken, and risotto.
