Iron Horse Classic Vintage Brut 2009
Hand harvested in the chilly fog of 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 with a touch of ’fruit forwardness’ resulting in a sparkling wine that shows wonderful complexity that is rich, nutty and toasty with a hint of fruit. The dosage for this wine is 4mls of Brut LEX (75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay), 14 mls Blanc de Blancs LEX and 2mls 2010 Thomas Road Pinot Noir
By nose: rising dough, orange marmalade and baked apple. By mouth: ripe red apple, mandarin orange and hazelnut. This is a beautiful sparkling with crispy pomme frittes with sea salt and black pepper, truffle popcorn, avocado and baby shrimp salad, bacon and watercress sandwich, wild mushroom tart, spaghetti with cream, parmesan and crispy onions, roast duckling with citrus.
Varietal: 74% Pinot Noir & 26% Chardonnay
