Tasting Notes
100% Chardonnay

Wild Horse's 2012 Unbridled Chardonnay is like a fun filled day at the county fair. Aromas of butterscotch, apple cobbler, lemon meringue pie, and vanilla are enticing. Upon entry, the mouthfeel is lively with bright lemon citrus, apple tart, and a lingering deliciousness. Tastes exceptional now or lay down for up to five years.

Vineyard Notes
This wine is almost a blend of wines from two exceptional vineyards in Santa Maria Valley: Bien Nacido (93%) and Rancho Real (7%). Bien Nacido Vineyard is located up on a bench in the Eastside of the Santa Maria Valley up against the Sierra Madre mountain range. Rancho Real is towards the West with all vineyard rows on south facing slopes for optimal sun exposure. Both vineyards have well drained sandy soils and maritime influence resulting in classic Santa Maria Valley style Chardonnays.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were 100% hand harvested and delivered to Wild Horse Winery. Upon arrival to the winery, the grapes were pressed whole cluster using a bladder press. The Chardonnay was fermented in 100% French Oak barrels and stirred bi-weekly for three months to enhance mouth feel and provide self fining. This Unbridled Chardonnay was aged in 35% new French oak with the balance of one to two year old oak for 14 months.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this wine with chicken Dijon or King crab legs.
