A very nice Chardonnay marked by crisp dryness and fine structure, which highlights the pleasant varietal flavors. Offers a nice array of pineapples, peaches, apricots and green apples, accented by the smoky vanilla of oak and grounded in minerals.

This is a Chardonnay that just screams "Fall!" Ripe orchard fruits on the palate - crisp, juicy pear and tart green apple - are rounded out with spicy nutmeg and toasted caramel notes. With a smooth, broad mouthfeel and long, full finish, the Matchbook is perfect for pairing with pumpkin pastries, chicken casseroles or other savory oven-roasted dishes.

Matchbook Chardonnay is more European in style in that the oak levels are restrained, alcohols are reduced and the wine is fermented dry. The Chardonnay from the Matchbook Vineyard adds tropical fruit aromas and flavors; the barrel fermentation contributes creamy, honey flavors and roundness to the texture. The Russian River Valley fruit adds casaba melon, Rippen apple flavors and slatey mineral undertones. The Viognier adds lovely honeysuckle aromas and the tiny touch of fruit sweetness that makes this wine so appealing.
