Winemaker's Notes

Classic Iron Horse Chardonnay. Very elegant, some say restrained and "European" in style, which according to Robert Parker continues to remind him of premier cru Chablis. "There is an underlying mineral character, citrusy, graceful fruitiness, cleanly made-stylish". A classy bottle of wine, very smooth and silky, gorgeous, mouthwatering fruit, not overshadowed by too much oak, completely dry-no residual sugar, zero malolactic fermentation. The polar opposite of big, buttery, oaky Chardonnay. Food pairing: Wonderful with paté, shrimp, prawns, crab, grilled scallops, halibut, salmon, baked goat cheese salad with walnut or hazelnut vinaigrette, roast chicken, veal chops.
