Winemaker Ken Volk has had a tremendous influence on the Central Coast wine scene.He founded Wild Horse Winery way back in 1981 and was a tremendous advocate for PasoRobles wines for over two decades. In 2003, however, he sold Wild Horse to Jim Beam WineEstates and set about refurbishing the original Byron Winery in the Santa Maria Valley, wherehe’s downsized his production to a boutique-like 16,000 cases, under his new label, KennethVolk Vineyards.Drawing from Bien Nacido Vineyard (just up the road from his new winery), this unique, single vineyard, single block Chardonnay shows green pippin apple, ripe pear andtoasted cereal grains on the nose. Sweet green apple fruit flavors with wet stones/minerals as itspartner is apparent but not overpowering. A sweet spot of fruit forms on mid palate but iscomplimented by flinty minerality, really expressing the terroir of the vineyard block. Oh, did Imention, it’s elegant and almost understated in a way; the same way it would pair with sushi orsimply grilled fish.
