2018 Wedding Cuvee

The 2018 vintage is especially bright and exciting. Pale salmon in color, this is the most romantic of the Iron Horse bubblies. Stately in quality; festive in feel with effusive notes of raspberry and zesty lemon accented with graham cracker and fresh ginger, picking up creamy and spicy notes along the way to a long finish.

“No one will set it down and just forget about it.”

94 Points. This beautiful bubbly is stately yet festive, with effusive notes of raspberry and zesty lemon accented with graham cracker and fresh ginger as this fans out on the finish, picking up creamy and spicy notes along the way.”

TASTING NOTES

Pale Salmon in color with lively bubbles and Mousse. The 2018 Wedding Cuvée has a great raspberry aromas, followed by strawberry and a touch of lemon zest. Great red fruit flavors on the front palate that extend to the mid palate, followed by a burst of red apple and creaminess leading to a grapefruit finish with amazing texture throughout.


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 2018 Wedding Cuvée is 3 mls Brut Lex, 3 mls Blanc de Noir Lex, 8 mls 2019 UnOaked Chardonnay, 6 mls 2019 Gold Ridge Pinot Noir and 4 mls SP08
