Ocean Reserve is a special, limited edition vintage Blanc de Blancs created with Mission Blue, a marine conservation non-profit founded by legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle. $5 per bottle sold will go to Mission Blue, whose objective is to establish a global network of marine protected areas, called “Hope Spots”. The goal is to protect 30% of our marine resources by 2030. Dr. Earle is a National Geographic Explorer in Residence. She was the first woman Chief Scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Time Magazine’s first Hero of The Planet, a Ted Prize winner, and is lauded as “her deepness” because she has logged more than 7,000 hours underwater. The Pacific is the engine of the special, cool, foggy microclimate, which allows Iron Horse to make Sparkling Wines on this level of finesse and elegance and makes giving back so essential. The connection between Pacific fog, sparkling wine, and people who care generates a special kind of magic. This saline expression of sparkling Chardonnay exudes kaffir lime and lemongrass aromas, giving way to lemon verbena and juicy green apple on the palate, the finish is pleasingly dry and stoney. It is a crisp and firm accompaniment to seafood and a great conversation starter. The Iron Horse Ocean Reserve is an incredible accompaniment to raw bar fare, sushi, and crudités.
