Matchbook OLD HEAD Chardonnay 2016

California, United States

THE BEST AMERICAN CHARDONNAY WE HAVE TASTED IN THIS PRICE BAND. 


FIVE STARS 18.5/20 | Raymond Chan
FIVE STARS 94/100 | Wine Orbit
92/100 & BEST BUY | Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Fans of bold, mouthfilling Californian Chardonnay, it's time to focus. Matchbook 2016 from the Dunnigan Hills sub region is an exciting new release to hit the New Zealand market and in our view, it is clearly the best of the USA Chardonnays we have seen in this price bracket in recent years.

Dry to taste and overflowing with ripe stonefruit, lemon crème brûlée, sizzled butter and toasty oak flavours, this is everything you can ask for in American Chardonnay and seeing wine of this calibre in the sub$20 bracket is a massive win for local fans of robust Chardonnay.

Thankfully Matchbook sidesteps the sweeter fruit characters of some of the market leaders in this category and has been handled with respect in the winery. It has been 90% barrel fermented (22% new) in a combination of French, American & European oak and that regime has added further weight and complexity to this impressive, opulent wine. 

The results and the critical acclaim speaks for themselves. Buy with our highest recommendation.

Tasting Notes
Sam Kim writes " 94/100 Opulent and plush, this delectable chardonnay shows gorgeous aromas of apricot, vanilla custard, mango and cedar on the nose followed by a concentrated palate that is fleshy and silky. The wine delivers waves of delicious flavours, finishing superbly long and creamy".
