Tasting Notes
Dark Horse Chardonnay offers bright, abundant aromas of baked apple and peaches, layered with buttery notes of toasted oak and caramel. Its rich flavours are nicely complemented by refreshingly crisp acidity, culminating in a smooth, lingering finish
History
At Dark Horse Wine, we wholeheartedly believe that fortune favours the bold. Winemaker Beth Liston marshals the best agricultural and winemaking resources from around the globe to deliver the unexpected: a bold wine that outperforms its price.
Regional Information
The grapes for our Dark Horse Chardonnay were harvested during low night temperatures to preserve fresh fruit flavours. Fermentation occurred at temperatures between 56°-64°F with selected aromatic yeast resulting in intense aromatics and an expressive mouthfeel. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on oak to increase the aromatic complexity and the mouth weight.
Current Vintage
2015
Vinification Details
The grapes for our Chardonnay were selected from premier California vineyards by our Winemaker Beth Liston. In 2015, the warm and dry weather combined with minimal heat spikes made the growing season ideal. Canopy management played a key role in allowing just the right amount of sunlight on the berries, resulting in a perfect balance of flavour and acidity in the glass. Grape yields were down from last year, producing fruit with very vibrant flavours and aromas.

Very decent Chardonnay

For a chardonnay costing £8.50, also sometimes on offer for £7.00 you cant complain. Yes maybe it was better when they used corks but its still pretty good.

Bland

Has a lovely nose ... but zero finish. Very disappointing, and the rest of the bottle has been degraded as cooking wine.

Too sweet

I bought this wine based on the reviews and I am a huge fan of Chardonnay. This wine was so sweet that it was undrinkable, I threw it away.

Not the same wine beware of 2015 crop & screw cap

Such a shame, the 2014 vintage with a cork was a great example of a Californian chardonnay. Sadly the 2014 vintage is done and with the 2015 comes a screw cap and if you carefully read the label its no longer bottled in the US but UK. Now a totally different wine, if you like something tinny, thin with a sharp aftertaste this is for you but not if you like a creamy, toasty and oaky chardonnay. A nasty cheap example of what was previously a great wine at a bargain price. To find something comparable to the 2014 you'll need to spend upwards of £15 or go to a specialist importer.
