With zesty acidity, this is a bright, lively Chardonnay. It’s very rich, offering waves of orange, green apple, pear and tropical fruit flavors, made firm with minerals. Drink this flashy Chardonnay over the next three years.
This is a very rich Chardonnay. It has complex, lush flavors of pineapples, lemons, limes, oranges and the smoky vanilla notes from 100% new oak. High acidity fortunately provides crisp balance. Almost too much of a good thing, it calls for equally rich fare, such as lobster or Ahi tuna tartare.
This is Iron Horse’s first foray into native yeast winemaking, and the wine does have a yeasty, leesy quality, in addition to the usual dryness and minerality. In fact, this Chard is a little austere. Try giving it some years in the cellar.
