Wine of the Month – 2016 Matchbook Chardonnay!

by: Virginia Valdez Sandfer

Joey Casco aka “The Wine Stalker” named the 2016 Matchbook Chardonnay his Wine of the Month for May 2018!

We love Joey’s straight-forward and knowledgeable wine reviews.  Following is an excerpt from his review of the Matchbook 2016 “Old Head” Chardonnay.

“The color of the wine is a straw yellow. The first thing I get on the nose is toasty oak, followed by Bullseye caramel candy, melons, and pears. In the mouth it’s true to form with a fuller body than most Chardonnays in its price range, but it also has a brighter acidity than previous vintages and it’s even added a touch of sweetness. There’s flavors of pineapple, lemon custard, sweetened pear juice, and vanilla. Then it finishes with lemon custard and vanilla.

Still rockin’ it, still a great deal, still a recommendation. Love it!
