The Chardonnay grapes were sourced from three blocks within the highly acclaimed Bien Nacido
Vineyard in the southeastern corner of the Santa Maria Valley. The grapes were 100% hand harvested and delivered via refrigerated truck to Wild Horse Winery in the morning. Upon delivery to the winery, the grapes were pressed whole cluster using a bladder press. Hard press was separated from free run and processed separately. Primary fermentation was initiated in a stainless steel tank followed by immediate transfer to a mix of French, Hungarian, and American barrels. Upon completion of primary fermentation, barrels were topped and inoculated with malolactic bacteria. The wine and lees were stirred weekly for three months to enhance mouth feel and provide self fining. This Unbridled Chardonnay was aged in 35% new oak for 10 months.
Our 2007 Unbridled Chardonnay provides incredible depth and richness while also maintaining the elegant characteristic of old world wines. The ocean influence in the Santa Maria Valley provides the distinctiveness of citrus, pear, and apple coupled with bright acidity. The 100% malolactic fermentation naturally lowers the inherent acidity in the wine contributing to a complex and fulfilling mid-palate richness. This exquisite Chardonnay demonstrates extremely bright citrus and apple aromas mixed with
subtle nutty caramel from the French Oak followed by a graceful, well balanced finish. This wine is well
paired with seared Ahi and grilled rolled chicken tacos with corn cake.
"Burnished gold hue. Pear nectar and toasted oak aromas. Rich apple and pear flavors with a thick, nectar-like texture. Pineapple and peach notes emerge in the close, joining a toasted oak nuance."
