Limited
2016 Estate Chardonnay
Iron Horse Estate Chardonnay is an elegant wine, true to its roots in cool, foggy Green Valley. It has a bright, complex citrus character and the sweet-tart, crisp flavors of our local Gravenstein apple. This vintage is drinking at its best right now with a bit of bottle age.

Profile


TASTING NOTES

By nose: Great complexity with touches of pineapple, melon, green apple, kiwi, and yeast. By mouth: Minerality, pineapple, lime, and a gentle mouth feel (a result of extensive batonnage).


VINEYARD NOTES

2016 is an exceptional vintage. This bottling represents seven individual blocks on the estate giving it wonderful complexity.


WINEMAKER NOTES

A distinguishing characteristic of this wine is that it is fermented in barrels with water bent (in stead of fire bent) staves, which gives a much softer oak component. Our Estate Chardonnay is a classic food wine. Try it with thyme – roasted chicken with buttermilk mashed potatoes and a salad of baby greens. Salmon rillettes on buttered brioche would be a perfect hors d’oeuvre.
