Anything but ordinary
Winemaker, Beth Liston, knocked the dust off the traditional Chardonnay flavour profile to give this classic varietal a true Dark Horse makeover. Thanks to her signature mix of classic and innovative techniques, Dark Horse Chardonnay has made believers out of the very label-chasers who thought quality wine had to come at a price.
Blending vintages to intensify the tasting notes
RAPID SUR LIE AGEING
(a pricey ageing technique Beth has perfected at a reasonable cost)
(Or ML for the cool kids. A second fermentation that allows some of the more acidic flavours to mellow out)
FRENCH AND AMERICAN OAK AGEING
What You'll Taste
The light sweetness of juicy, stone fruit flavours
A softer, creamier flavour ride
Divine, buttery notes with a smooth finish
The deep, toasty flavours of oak and vanilla
Bring on your heavyweights, this Chardonnay is no pushover. When you're staring down a super indulgence like lobster mac n' cheese, the assertive Dark Horse Chardonnay is your perfect match. This show off also elevates bright, sunshiny flavours in summer staples like sangrias and creamy desserts.
