Iron Horse Vineyards Chardonnay Green Valley Unoaked 2008
All of our Chardonnay is handled one lot at a time. Only as the grapes arrive at the winery do we decide how to treat them. Sometimes it is straight to the press as whole clusters, while other times a cold soak might be necessary. All of the UnOaked Chardonnay had about one hour of skin contact in the press before pressing, to allow the right amount of skin contact, followed by a cold stainless steel fermentation to retain esters, i.e., brightness, minerality and exotic fruit elements.
