Winemaker's Notes:

The Wild Horse style of Viognier captures the aromatic charm and richness of this varietal. Our 2004 displays aromas of ripe apricot, nectarine and honeysuckle blossom. Similar lush flavors are complemented by a hint of ginger and spice. The wine is well-balanced by bright acidity and the minerality characteristic of our Central Coast vineyards.

Best served chilled, this delicious wine is a perfect aperitif. Its crisp, aromatic character holds up well to typically spicy cuisines. We recommend trying Viognier with Pacific Rim and Cajun dishes of shellfish, seafood and chicken.

About Wild Horse:

Located south of Paso Robles in Templeton, California, Wild Horse Winery was founded in 1983 by Ken Volk. Wild Horse Winery was named for the wild mustangs that roamed the hills east of the vineyard estate. These mavericks suggest a free, noble spirit and are the ideal symbol for the Wild Horse Winery commitment to spirited winemaking. The vineyard and winery location was selected for its low vigor soils, proven ground water table, proximity to Estero Bay and rural atmosphere. Wild Horse Winery creates compelling wines from 16 diverse appellations and more than 40 vineyards from the Central Coast. Wild Horse Winery is committed to sustainable viticultural and business practices and creating fine wines that express the best of the region’s diversity. "Live Naturally, Enjoy Wildly" reflects the attitude and personalities of the people who have been creating these wines for over 25 years.
