Iron Horse Vineyards Champagne Blend Green Valley Ultra Brut 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Ultra Brut means ultra dry, ultra expressive, ultra elegant. The dosage is under 0.5% residual sugar - barely perceptible, but adds just the right amount of “polish”.

Drive past the berry farms on Ross Station Road, past the point where you can’t imagine there’s anything at the end of the road, crest the knoll and be awestruck as the view opens up to 350 acres covered with grape vines. Continue down the hill, across a small bridge, past the vegetable gardens, up a winding oak lined drive, between a row of alternating palm and olive trees and finally to the charming Iron Horse Winery, where you will enjoy a stunning view all the way across Sonoma County to Mt. St. Helena. The winery is best known for its Sparkling Wines. The Obama Adminstration is the fifth consecutive presidental administration to serve Iron Horse at the White House, a tradition that began in 1985 with the historic U.S.-Russian Summit Meetings ending the Cold War. The Chardonnay is cool climate perfection. Pinot Noir is the winery’s rising star wine. Read less

Very direct and obvious nose with a huge pumpkin note. On the palate this is very dry with a sculpted texture that is very precise with mineral and chalk tones and crisp pear fruit. This lacks the length that the sugar of higher dosage wines creates. 87pts

By nose: Yeast, ripe red apple and tangerine. By mouth: Filbert nut, creamy mouthfeel at the mid-palate with a touch of burnt orange peel at the finish. Serve with anything raw, including oysters, caviar, sushi and sashimi, cured and smoked fish, cured and smoked ham.
