Food Pairings for Iron Horse Vineyards Champagne Blend Green Valley Brut Ld
Hand harvested in the early morning, our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes are gently pressed as whole clusters yielding base wines of great delicacy. The juice ferments slowly at 62° to 65° f retaining vibrant fruit esters. In blending this wine we chose Pinot Noir and Chardonnay lots that were a bit shy by nose but have lean and angular elements by mouth. What was once shy now exhibits wonderful complexity and creaminess that comes from four plus years of aging on the yeast. The dosage for this wine is a mere 4 ml of Special LEX
By nose: Bakers yeast, ripened apple and mandarin orange. By mouth: Meyer lemmon and green apple, gentle creamy mouth feel followed by a lingering finish and a touch of yeast. As should be true with all Tête de Cuvées, great by itself. Best matched with “earthy” foods such as mushrooms, truffles, foie gras, sweet breads and even butternut and other winter squashes.
