MATCHBOOK VINEYARDS 2011 MATCHBOOK CHARDONNAY OLD HEAD DUNNIGAN HILLS "A great value Chardonnay, full of big green apple flavor, that’s well-made and not overly complicated. With some texture and just enough heft, have it mid-week with lemony chicken." Wine Enthusiast 87 points
Technical notes
Six different Chardonnay clones from a sustainably farmed vineyard in Dunnigan Hills (97%) were used in this wine. Clone 809 was cold tank fermented to enhance its Muscat character. The other lots were barrel fermented in French and Hungarian oak (22% new) with periodic battonage. The remaining Chardonnay was sourced from the Russian River Valley (3%) and fermented in stainless steel.

WHY MATCHBOOK? As a farm kid growing up in the late 1950´s and early 1960´s John Giguiere was a confirmed pyromaniac starting various things on fire such as his father´s wheat field. At one point, fearing total ruin from his kids burning him out of the house and farm, his father took them to the city jail for an hour stay to impress upon his brother and him the futility of their fascination with fire. John and his brother answered at a later date by graduating from random fires to the launching of rockets which often blew up at some stage of the its journey resulting in more random fires and a call to the local fire department for help. They eventually grew out of this fascination with the “Matchbook” but still have fond memories of the power they possessed. About the Appellation Matchbook has seven products, all focusing on varietals that perform well in the warm Dunnigan Hills climate. We blend a percentage of coastal fruit to the Dunnigan Hills wines to add structure and intensify flavors.
