Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) 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, Pippen 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.
