A tribute to a great lady, Iron Horse Co-Founder Audrey Sterling, named a Sonoma Icon in 2022. This wine is the epitome of class and style with mouthwatering flavors. Great depth and complexity.

Customer Reviews

“The best Chardonnay Iron Horse has ever produced.”

Profile


TASTING NOTES

By nose this chardonnay has a great amount of honeysuckle and green apple, followed by stone fruit and a hint of Madagascar vanilla bean. Green apple is the predominant flavor at the very beginning of the front palate, with a great integration of oak and fruit which balances out the wine throughout the mouth. Delightful flavors of peach and honeysuckle in the mid palate, with creaminess from the mid palate though the finish.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Only as the grapes arrive at the winery do we decide how to treat them. This Chardonnay was handled in small 10 ton lots (one press load) at a time. 100% of the Chardonnay grapes were pressed as whole clusters, just as we do with sparkling wine. Frequent lees stirring or ’batonnage’, at least three times a week for at least
seven months contributes to the complex flavors.

Corn off the Cob Salad

The fashion rules about white after Labor Day do not apply to Chardonnay … especially when paired with corn.  Right now, corn is very big on TikTok. Surely you have seen the *Corn Kid*, who says “everything changed” when he discovered corn. This corn off the cob salad has a kick to it and key is having crisp, sweet, garden fresh lettuce. This recipe serves 4-6 people and pairs beautifully with our 2019 Audrey Chardonnay.
