Upon completing this comprehensive tasting, our group was led out the the center courtyard where we had the opportunity to unwind, enjoy the warm weather and enjoy a glass of wine. I chose a glass of the 2009 Semillon..
I also had the opportunity to chat with Santiago Mayorga Boaknin, the vineyard manager and oenologist at Mendel. Santiago was recovering from foot surgery, and for this reason was deftly scooting around the winery on a contraption that looked a bit like a Razor scooter.
And 5 minutes later.. this beautiful Argentine spread! What a great way to round out our visit.
