NBC: Nothing But Chardonnay

Taste the good flavor, not the wood flavor.

We say Chardonnay, you say oak. But Iron Horse doesn't. Thanks to its stainless steel fermentation, their 2010 UnOaked Chardonnay tastes of nothing but the grape's crisp, mineral green apple and mandarin orange flavors.

Iron Horse's aromatic, exotic 2010 UnOaked Chardonnay stomps the convetional wisdom about Chardonnays into a runny, pulpy mush. In their cold steel hands, the only thing "Chardonnay" and "cliche" have in common is that they rhyme. And the only tree that comes anywhere near this Chard is the roasted poultry you'll be pairing with it.

Features

2010 Iron Horse UnOaked Chardonnay 750ml 3-Pack

By nose: minerality, green melon and mandarin orange

By mouth: crisp minerality, green apple and mandarin orange

Perfect for lunch; sandwiches and salads. A great sit out on the deck wine. Ideal with Dungeness Crab - you don’t even need condiments, the wine takes care of that. Cornish Game Hen and a huckleberry sauce in the summer.

All of the Iron Horse Chardonnay is handled one lot at a time. Only as the grapes arrive at the winery do they 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 at least one hour of skin contact in the press to control acidity, to avoid fruit-reducing malolactic fermentation, and to extract bright aromatic and flavor compounds. Iron Horse then follows with a cold stainless steel fermentation (between 60f and 63f) to retain esters, i.e., brightness, minerality and exotic fruit elements.
