The 2007 Fairy Tale Celebration Cuvée is without a doubt the most "celebratory" of Iron Horse's Sparklings. Made from predominantly Pinot Noir, it has an exhilarating rosé color. The 2007 vintage is elegant, vibrant and creamy. Available only at Disneyland, Disney World, Disney Cruise ships and through the winery.
By nose strawberry, minerality and ripe red apple. In the mouth apricot, cherry, strawberry and cardamom, cinnamon with lime at the finish. Ideal with party fare; perfect brunch wine– eggs, berries, salmon and even waffles, excellent as an aperitif, for toasts and even a nightcap.
Fairy Tale Celeberation Cuvée is Iron Horse's interpretation of a Blanc de Noirs. In blending this wine they choose Pinot Noir lots that are extremely expressive and fruit forward (including some lots originally intended for our Brut Rosé). Then in a decided step away from convention, they blended in a bit of steely Chardonnay to add a firm acid backbone. Hand harvested in the chill of early morning our Pinot Noir is gently pressed as whole clusters. The juice slowly ferments in stainless steel tanks at 62° to 65° f retaining bright fruit aromas and flavors in the wine.
