Bright, crisp, mineraly and richly fruity. On the nose, minerality, green melon and mandarin orange . By mouth, crisp minerality, green apple and mandarin orange. Perfect for lunch; sandwiches and salads. A great sit out on the deck wine. Ideal with Dungeness Crab - you don't even need condiments, the wine takes care of that.
"When handled with care, chardonnay without oak can sustain the kind of lithe elasticity this wine's fruit shows, a brisk, foggy version of a style more typical of the Alpine reaches of northeastern Italy than of Sonoma. The fruit is musky and fresh, a combination of orange citrus and cider apple. A firm and juicy white to serve with grilled salmon."

"A superb wine to taste if you want to understand why Iron Horse Chardonnays are so good. With no oak, it stars pure pineapple, orange, green apple, lime and tropical fruit flavors, brightened with crisp acidity. Just delicious."
