The most distinctive and elegant of the Iron Horse cuvées, made from 100% Chardonnay, this vintage is aged an average of 4 plus years on the yeast. It is ethereal - like drinking a cloud. It seems to effervesce away in your mouth and tastes like, among other flavors, a perfectly browned, lightly buttered slice of sourdough toast.
A natural on Sunday morning with a beautiful, juicy melon. It is a sensational match with oysters, smoked salmon, caviar and pate. Ideal with roast chicken because it adds a clean, lemony flavor to the dish.
"A rich sparkler, this focuses on a through line of tart apple flavor. It's crisp and clean, with firm leesiness adding a smoky bass note. Serve it now with a seafood terrine, or age it a year or two for Dungeness crab."
Wine & Spirits
"The 2005 vintage was a very great one for Iron Horse. This 100% Chardonnay reflects the perfect growing conditions. It's dry and especially elegant, with rich brioche, lime and green apple flavors, and a firm minerality in the finish. Drink Now"
