Iron Horse Vineyards Chardonnay Green Valley Estate Bottled 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

By nose: Strawberry and raspberry. By mouth: rich and full bodied with intense raspberry fruit. Our Rosé of Pinot Noir has ample body and structure to enable it to pair wonderfully with a range of dishes. On the lighter side - watermelon, feta & basil salad or bay scallop cevice with fresh avocado. Or go for bolder flavors such as grilled oregano chicken skewers with lemon aioli or a rack of sweet and mildly spicy barbequed ribs.

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

2009. Nice Russian River Chardonnay, not overly oaked, creamy with good structure.

With appealing pineapple, orange, pear and green apple flavors enhanced with the vanilla and buttered toast of oak, this is a delicious Chardonnay. Its bright acidity makes it clean and mouthwatering.

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.

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.
