2005 Iron Horse Ultra Brut Sparkling Wine

This goes for $50 from the winery and appears to be a limited offering.

Green apple on the nose. As in bite into a ripe Granny Smith and shove your nose in it - this is it.

As expected, tart green apple dominates. There's also a grassy sort of thing going on, perhaps some lemon zest. A very nice stream of tiny bubbles that last quite a while give this a very nice mouthfeel. As it breathes, I do get a bit of doughy notes that I am digging.

More of that lemon with a bit of lime and some interesting floral kinda qualities.

A good bottle...quite good, in fact. Great? I don't know.

Score: 87+
