"the flagship Chardonnay of the estate, is named for Maté Brajkovich, who founded the winery along with his parents in 1944...It combines the richness of their Coddington Chardonnay with the flinty precision of the Hunting Hill Chardonnay."

“A zingy wine, with plenty of green apple, Bartlett pear and lemon-lime flavors that are bright and refreshing, with a crisp acidity surging through. Shows accents of fresh thyme and mineral on the finish.”

"The 2008 Maté’s shows more lushness than typical for the vineyard, but retains its hallmark lime-like acidity...creamy, lush mouthfeel and plenty of roasted-nut complexity wrapped around melony fruit. Finishes with lingering oak spice and citrus."

“butterscotch, toast and apricot kernel notes...aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle, coriander seed and warm Golden Delicious apple...very tight-knit with great tension, wonderfully crisp and pure acid, and a creamy richness that lingers...”
