June 2018 | Matchbook Chardonnay

June’s staff pick was chosen by Merritt Bremer IV, a member of the fifth generation of Bremers to work at the store.

When asked to chose a wine for a staff pick for June, Merritt immediately thought of Chardonnay. And the Matchbook Chardonnay was a no brainer. Perfect for warm spring days that are just starting to turn into summer as well as cool nights by the first fire of the year. Matchbook Chardonnay is filled with tropical aromas and toasty flavors and is just the right choice for our transition from Spring to Summer.

“Luscious with rich tropical fruit characters, the 2016 Estate Bottled Old Head Chardonnay is a showcase wine for the Dunnigan Hills terroir. This straw colored Chardonnay has tropical aromas of mango and melon complemented by hints of toasty oak. Flavors of crème brûlée are mellowed by pineapple, pear and ripe melon. An opulent Chardonnay that is balanced by a lingering fruit driven finish with lovely notes of butter and toasted marshmallow.” -Winemaker
