A pure expression of cool, foggy Green Valley, the Iron Horse 2018 Unoaked Chardonnay is remarkably rich and elegant with bright acidity. On the nose, a complex blend of stone fruit, green pear, and pineapple come to the forefront, while the palate offers balanced acidity with flavors of grapefruit, Gravenstein apple, and minerality. This wine pairs beautifully with crab cakes, salmon, bacon-wrapped scallops, proscuitto, pasta, and even vegetables. With their bright acidity, Unoaked Chardonnays like this one from Iron Horse are worth holding onto as they age so gracefully - that is, if you can resist drinking it up! Enjoy.
