Matchbook Arsonist Chardonnay
Matchbook’s 2018 The Arsonist Chardonnay is a luscious blend of the best barrel lots of estate-grown fruit. A beautiful golden straw color opens to aromas of toasty oak, crème brûlèe, brown sugar, and mango. Dense flavors of pineapple, caramel apples, and baking spices are layered over creamy buttery notes and a touch of vanilla. This is a full-bodied Chardonnay loaded with opulent flavors that are well integrated and balanced.
The Arsonist Chardonnay has enough depth of flavor to hold up to lobster, pasta with a cream sauce and, for the adventurous, a well-marbled steak.
Wilfred Wong– The 2018 Matchbook The Arsonist Chardonnay is packed, elevated, and delicious. This wine brings ripe fruit, oak, and butterscotch to the fore. Pair it with a crispy-batter, minute steak.
Tasting Panel– Smooth and velvety with nice depth and balance; rich and complex yet subtle, with notes of vanilla, new oak, and ripe (but not heavy) fruit culminating in a long and generous finish.
