Matchbook Chardonnay Dunnigan Hills 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

To showcase the wine's rich Chardonnay character, we aged it for eight months in "Old Heads" - barrels that have been used for a past vintage, so there is less oak extraction and more of the beautiful, bright flavors of the grape. This lusciously opulent wine has all the richness without the excessive oak and butter that characterize most California Chardonnays. Wonderful aromas of pineapple, pear and orange flower honey are prominent with undertones of toasty oak. There is a kiss of orange blossom perfume in the background. Flavors of apple butter and cinnamon toast are balanced by a good dose of lemon zest and a crisp, mineral finish. Pair this lovely Chardonnay with roast chicken or risotto or a salad of apples, pears and sharp cheese.
