Ironstone 2005 Reserve Chardonnay (Calaveras County)

Best Buy

Ironstone's Reserve Chard has been getting interesting of late, and the '05 is a fascinating study in vintage, contrasted with the '04. The vintage was a cool one, and the wine is loaded with acidity and minerality reminscent of Chablis. You can taste things like granite and mica that give a rich tang of earth to the underlying pineapple and oak flavors. Finishes long and totally dry.
