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".

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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.
Production Notes
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.
Winemaker Notes
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!
