Matchbook Dunnigan Hills ‘Old Head’ Chardonnay 2016

19-Sep-2018

Matchbook is the Dunnigan Hills, California brand of the Giguiere brothers who had a reputation for being pyromaniacs, hence the name of the brand. The brothers established their first winery, R.H. Philips in 1984 which became so successful for their ‘Toasted Head’ Chardonnay that Vincor bought the company in 2000 to acquire the brand. The brothers then set up the Matchbook vineyard in 2002, releasing their own wines again in 2006, followed by building a winery in 2011. Matchbook has gained a reputation for growing first-class fruit, with a special focus on Spanish varieties, but their ‘Old Head’ Chardonnay is one of the most popular. www.matchbookwines.com The wine is imported and distributed in New Zealand by Procure Liquor, a very good source of Californian wine.  www.procureliquor.co.nz
