Matchbook The Arsonist Chardonnay 2015


SKU 113483


A luscious wine with seamless integration of oak and fruit, Matchbook's 2015 The Arsonist Chardonnay showcases the quality of the Dunnigan Hills. We hand select the best barrel lots of our estate grown fruit to craft this Chardonnay. Enticing aromas of brown butter and honeysuckle mingle with baking spices and vanilla. Honey, melon and stone fruit flavors bring this rich wine to life with hints of toasty oak in the mid-palate. The Arsonist is big and creamy, yet welcoming in its nuanced synthesis of flavors. Pair with fettuccini alfredo, poached lobster drawn in butter or with your favorite salmon recipe.

Wine EnthusiastAn overt and attractive toasted-oak aroma leads to assertive, smoky, buttery flavors in this traditional reserve-style California Chardonnay. Full bodied, it pulls out all the stops for a grand expression of pear, toasted almond and nutmeg flavors that are backed by ample acidity.
