2017 Wedding Cuvee Magnum

This is Iron Horse’s most romantic bubbly. We describe the 2017 Wedding Cuvée as dangerously easy to drink. Warm straw color with a pure mousse, this fruit forward, elegantly dry bubbly, displays ultra tiny bubbles and an exceedingly long finish. This was the #3 wine of the year in
Wine Enthusiast when originally released in regular sized bottles a year ago with a 97-point rating and described as tasting like “brioche with freshly picked strawberries and blood orange”. Now more romantic than ever.

TASTING NOTES

By nose: raspberry, mandarin orange peel and nutmeg. In the mouth stone fruit, pink grapefruit, Tahitian lime, blood orange, raspberry with a gentle mouthfeel. A food friendly wine that works with most styles, sauces and preparations. 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!


WINEMAKER NOTES

Wedding Cuvée is our interpretation of a Blanc de Noirs. In blending this wine we chose Pinot Noir lots that were 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. The dosage for the 2017 Wedding Cuvée is 3 mls Blanc de Noirs Lex, 3 mls Blanc de Blancs Lex, 6 mls 2018 Rued Chardonnay, 4 mls 2017 Gold Ridge Pinot Noir ans 2 mls SP08.
