A scrumptious Californian Chardonnay for a good discount. If you like the Bogle Chardie you'll love this -- a step up for less money. Matchbook are really serious growers in California's Dunnigan Hills, where sunny days and cool nights produces long-ripened flavours with nice balancing freshness. By lavishing it with both new and old oak, Matchbook have perfected a style that is rich and mouth-filling but also classy. Serious satisfaction for this value price!

Its Origins

Matchbook Wine Company is a family-owned winery tucked away in Northern California's gently rolling Dunnigan Hills. The Giguiere family immigrated to Yolo County from Quebec City in the 1850’s in search of open ag ground. John and Karl Giguiere are 5th generation farmers who know the region’s soil, climate and true potential of the land. This knowledge combined with their curiosity and drive to innovate defines their determination to constantly improve the viticulture and winemaking of the region.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"Beautifully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows summer peach, mango, vanilla and roasted nut characters, leading to a succulent palate that is plump and rounded. The wine offers excellent fruit intensity backed by creamy mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing long and smooth. At its best: now to 2020. $25.00. NZ Distributor: Procure. May 2019." Drink 2018 - 2020

90/100 Wine Enthusiast

“This medium-bodied wine is subtle on the nose, but opens up on the palate to rich fruit and spice flavors that coat the tongue. It is balanced toward the soft side, but with underling acidity to balance the richness."
