Mission Briefing

Codename:

Quiet complexity

If you are looking for a really food friendly white wine, you’ve found it in today’s easy-drinking 2013 Matchstick Chardonnay.

Today’s Chardonnay is an easy-drinking, fresh and food friendly wine that complexity that surprises - given its low price. This Chardonnay is fresh and bright on the nose, with Meyer lemon, lemongrass, pineapple, dried straw and a hint of caramel. On the palate, you’ll taste Meyer lemon, lemon curd, lime flower, pineapple, guava, white peach and acacia flower.

Right out of the cooler, this wine is fresh and bright - but allow the wine to come up in temperature just a bit and it reveals previously hidden complexity. Earthy notes, lemongrass and subtle toasty caramel reveal themselves, making the wine a more intriguing (and delicious) treat.

Note that this is a lower-alcohol wine, making it a lower-calorie choice that is really smooth and easy to drink, with or without a great food pairing.
