The 2011 Estate Chardonnay is signature Green Valley. By nose, vanilla and spice, ripe red apple and a touch of lees on the finish. This Chardonnay is savory, complex and satisfying, with a touch of minerality, tarragon and vanilla.
Definitely a food wine. Pair this wine with roast chicken, crab cakes, salmon, halibut, lobster, grilled mushrooms, fava beans and buttered corn.
"Iron Horse's 2011 Chardonnays are all fine in their own ways, but this Estate bottling seems to combine many of their best qualities in a single wine. With ripe orange, pear, apple and smoky oak flavors accented by brisk acidity, it shows the Iron Horse signature of elegant balance."
"This wine brings to mind a gingery English marmalade in its savory oak and orance flavors. There's also a clean, floral pear scent that comes up with air. A dry chardonnay to serve with lemony roast chicken. "
