Leaping Horse is part of the Kautz family’s collection of brands, and pays homage to the family’s love of horses. Rooted in four generations of farming and sustainable viticulture, it is the Kautz Family’s passion to produce world-class wines. Leaping Horse is about unpretentious and contemporary wine styles.
Born from a love of horses, Leaping Horse is aptly named. The Kautz family have been involved in many generations of riders and are passionate about their equine friends and partners. The Kautz family has been promoting and working with sustainable viticulture for over 35 years. This Chardonnay comes from soils that are sandy loam and well-drained allowing the ripeness to come through to the grapes. The wine spends four months’ aging in new French oak.
Medium-bodied with a delightful pale yellow hue, the 2016 Leaping Horse Vineyards Chardonnay is bright and crisp from start to finish. It has citrus highlights to green apples, pears and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. The finish hints to a bit of lemon zest and a tight minerality that is enjoyable and refreshing.
