Matchbook Old Head Chardonnay is a full-bodied, rich, creamy and oaky wine in the traditional Californian style – lovers of bigger style Chardonnay will enjoy this immensely.

The wine is 100% grown, produced and bottled on site at the Matchbook vineyard / winery in Dunnigan Hills and the entire business is family owned and operated – there is a great story to tell.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 vintage is true to the Matchbook Chardonnay signature style: a delicious balance of fruit and toasty oak. A golden sunshine color, the wine opens with a fresh bouquet of melons and apples. The aromas are echoed in the rich flavors of apricot and honey, butter and toast. 60% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation adding a nice creamy texture that leads to a long, lingering finish."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Splendidly ripe and complex, the wine shows grilled peach, baked fig, cedar and vanilla characters on the nose. It's equally satisfying on the palate with excellent weight and roundness, combined with creamy mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing gorgeously long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2024."


90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"There’s no mistaking the nutty, creamy vanilla rich bouquet with aromas of toasty wood and cashew nut, roasted peach and baked vanilla custard. Full-bodied, creamy texture with flavours of stone fruits, burnt butter, nut and baking spices on the palate. Balanced and well made, ready to enjoy from today and through 2022."


5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, May 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Bright, medium yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is open and gentle, nuances of pineapple, peach interweaves burnt butter, spiced nuts and creamy custard. Full-bodied, the flavours are complexed, pineapple, stonefruit have a good core, melded with custard, burnt butter and pastry, followed by toffee caramel, candied hazelnuts, and spices linger. The range of flavours integrated harmoniously, nutty oak and butter added richness. The creamy and full palate balanced by brilliant acidity left a lengthy, fulsome finish. Match with peanut butter chicken and hazelnut-crusted pork over the next 3-4 years. Estate grown fruit on Dunnigan Hills, 97% Chardonnay, 3% Verdejo, fermented in 75% barrel, 25% stainless steel to 13.9% alc. A combination of French, American & European oak (22% new oak), 60% MLF"

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
