MATCHBOOK DUNNIGAN HILLS OLD HEAD CHARDONNAY 18
Chardonnay is the world's favourite white grape and makes many of the best whites on Earth, including in the Dunnigan hills in California, a little slice of winemaking paradise situated north west of Sacramento.
This is a big rich wine with full, broad aromas of ripe tropical fruits and stonefruits entwined with creamy barrel ferment characters combined with nutty lees and toasty oak flavours, which are harmoniously intermixed with subtle lemon-curd malolactic fermentation notes.
The palate is full and mirrors the nose in terms of flavour. Drink now or keep in the cellar for two to three years and match with pork, veal and chicken dishes.
