Description

New Zealand's appetite for full bodied, rich, creamy and buttery Chardonnay has reached new heights and no one is doing it better than California - especially in the affordable price bracket. Matchbook Chardonnay is FWD Co's most exciting Californian discovery since Bogle. A complex blend of 6 Chardonnay fruit clones aged in a combination of 78% new barrels and 22% Old Hogs Head (2 to 5-year-old oak) American barriques - imparting a mix of vanilla, coconut and cinnamon notes to the ripe stone fruit. Malolactic fermentation and regular lees stirring layers the wine with nutty/creamy/buttery tastes. The upshot... a creamy balanced, rich and buttery Chardonnay that is hard to put your glass down. The ultimate value Californian Chardonnay sneaking in under $20.

Smells

Powerfully concentrated with ripe nectarine, honeysuckle, vanilla wine biscuits, pineapple, fresh butter and a hint of cinnamon.

Tastes

Equally concentrated, smooth and creamy on the palate giving way to ripe apricot, peach and pineapple. The creamy buttery body is superbly accentuated in the sustained finish. Chardonnay you just want to sit and sip all night long... that also pairs well with poultry and pork dishes, now through 2020.
