(2020) From a site that faces directly north and gets more of a tropical fruit character than the citrus and so “Can take heavier oak,” according to Michael Brajkovich. Just a touch of hazelnut and light toast, a pure line of lime fruit again, fabulous acidity, but touching on peach and nectarine-ripe juiciness. More flamboyant, but still taut and precise.
(2020) From a slope above the Maté's vineyard replanted in 2000, this is flecked with green in colour, a little touch of fig, but lots of lime blossom finesse. The palate has such a blast of salinity, sheer and flowing, such gorgeous clarity and that blast of mineral salts. Outstanding.
(2020) Maté Barjkovich's name lives on in this vineyard immediately opposite the winery and family home, all planted with the Mendoza clone. Gorgeous nose, quite opulent and pear and peach, so much vibrant, brilliant fruit and acid, moves into nougat, etched by beautiful acidity, the opulence and ripeness so nicely tempered by that core of structural acid, but delicate, always delicate.
(2020) A little depth of colour here, a touch of dried fruit and aged mushroom and not so aromatically vibrant. Orange and salt, the citrus peel and a little phenolic grip - only a little - perhaps that touch of botrytis richness again right in the finish. No stockists of the 2007 at time of writing, price and stockist given is for the 2009.
