Leaping Horse Chardonnay (750ml)
Ironstone Vineyards, the producer of Leaping Horse, is known for owning and operating several leading US wine brands. In addition to vineyards in the Sierra Foothills, Ironstone draws on the production from its Lodi appellation vineyards—some 4,500 acres (18 km2) in all.
Born from a love of horses, Leaping Horse is aptly named. The Kautz family have been involved in many generations of riders and are passionate about their equine friends and partners. From an artist rendition to today’s look, Leaping Horse is about unpretentious and contemporary wine styles.
Medium-bodied with a delightful pale-yellow hue, the Leaping Horse Vineyards Chardonnay is bright and crisp from start to finish. It has citrus highlights to green apples, pears and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. The finish hints to a bit of lemon zest and a tight minerality that is enjoyable and refreshing.
The wine spends four months in new French Oak.
