Winemaker's Notes

Ironstone Vineyards Chardonnay has wonderful aromas of citrus and fresh cut green apples. Its crisp, mineral style is delightfully refreshing with flavors of pineapple and mountain-ripe apples. The finish is crisp and clean balanced nicely by mild acidity.

For other main courses, try it with grilled pork smothered in apple chutney, shrimp scampi or veal scaloppini.
