Iron Horse Vineyards Chardonnay Green Valley Estate Bottled 2012
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.
2009. Nice Russian River Chardonnay, not overly oaked, creamy with good structure.
2009. Nice Russian River Chardonnay, not overly oaked, creamy with good structure. (same review from 6/10/12, just added proper vintage)
Aromas and flavors of light vanilla and citrus. Wonderful creamy mouthfeel, despite no malolactic fermentation. The acidity balances the creaminess and keeps it lively.
Aromas of vanilla and apples with flavors of apple pie and berry cobbler. General aromas and flavors of toast and baked fruit. Nice and creamy (without malolactic fermentation). Very enjoyable, despite the berry cobbler flavors.
Iron Horse Chardonnays tend to start out as tight rose buds and slowly open up to their full beauty. 2006 is just now beginning to show all that it has to offer.
Found it this time to have nose of warm apple tart. Palate is laced with creamy pear and apple and zesty peach cobbler-esque tones. - Tasted at The Hostile Grape 3/10/10
External Reviews for Iron Horse Vineyards Chardonnay Green Valley Estate Bottled
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.
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.
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.
We are successfully adding new layers and complexity to our Estate bottling without resorting to more oak and ML. For us, malo-lactic fermentation is simply an acid balancing tool not a stylistic component, and we feel very strongly about keeping the oak beautifully integrated in the wine.
WE 92pts - Winemaker Notes - Our concentration on Estate Chardonnay is bearing delicious fruit. We are successfully adding new layers and complexity to our Estate bottling without resorting to more oak and ML. For us, malo-lactic fermentation is simply an acid balancing tool not a stylistic component, and we feel very strongly about keeping the oak beautifully integrated in the wine.
This wine beautifully expresses the bright, focused, clean, sweet-tart flavors of cool, foggy Green Valley. It is beautifully balanced, imparting a delightful leesy , toasty, perfectly integrated bar
Minerality with a hint of lees. On mouth intense minerality and mandarin orange.
