This is Iron Horse's most romantic bubbly. It is made from predominantly Pinot Noir and has a slight pink hue. You can debate whether it is a pale, golden Rose or a Blanc de Noirs. We describe it as dangerously, deliciously easy to drink. Also known as "love potion".
Fruit forward, dry and elegant, with gorgeous tiny bubbles and a remarkably long finish. 78% Pinot Noir 22% Chardonnay. The dosage for the 2012 Wedding Cuvée is 5 ml Blanc de Noir Lex.
Wedding Cuvée is our interpretation of a Blanc de Noirs. In blending this wine we choose Pinot Noir lots that are extremely expressive and fruit forward. Then in a decided step away from convention, we blend in
a bit of steely Chardonnay to add a firm acid backbone. Hand harvested in the chill of early morning our Pinot Noir is gently pressed as whole clusters. The juice slowly ferments in stainless steel tanks at 62° to 65° f retaining bright fruit aromas and flavors in the wine.
By nose: raspberry, mandarin orange peel and nutmeg. In the mouth: stone fruit, pink grapefruit, Tahitian lime, blood orange, raspberry with a gentle mouth-feel.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with full flavored fish, pork chops, and chicken. Also try with crispy kale and stir-fried vegetables. All you really need is dark, bittersweet chocolate!
