Matchbook Chardonnay 2016
This straw colored Chardonnay has tropical aromas of mango and melon complemented by hints of toasty oak. Flavors of creme brulee are mellowed by pineapple, pear and ripe melon. An opulent Chardonnay that is balanced by a lingering fruit-driven finish with lovely notes of butter and toasted marshmallow. Enjoy this wine on its own or paired with panko crusted salmon, roasted pine nut chicken or wild mushroom risotto.
Bremer's June 2018 Staff Pick
When asked to chose a wine for a staff pick for June, Merritt immediately thought of Chardonnay. And the Matchbook Chardonnay was a no brainer. Perfect for warm spring days that are just starting to turn into summer as well as cool nights by the first fire of the year. Matchbook Chardonnay is filled with tropical aromas and toasty flavors and is just the right choice for our transition from Spring to Summer.
Wine Enthusiast"This wine from Matchbook has been improving steadily over recent vintages and now it's taken a big step toward more finesse and less flash. A very soothing mouthfeel and generous, but not overt, flavors make a great combination in this creamy, yummy and full-bodied wine. It has everything from toasty oak and lemon curd to mild marzipan nuances that interlace with good acidity for a balanced palate and a lingering finish."
