Vinification Details

  • The grapes for Dark Horse Chardonnay were harvested at optimum ripeness during cool night temperatures to preserve the fresh fruit flavours. The winemakers selected particularly aromatic yeast strains and employed a moderate fermentation process, which together have enhanced the natural flavours and expressive mouthfeel of this wine. Proper storage after fermentation has preserved the natural bright flavours and balance in the wine.

Regional Information

  • The 2018 season had a slow start due to a very cold winter and chilly spring which resulted in bud break coming about two weeks later than previous years. A mild spring resulted in slower growth and an extended bloom time. For the first time in 5 years, harvest started in August rather than July. White grapes seemed to hold their acid well and developed very nice fruit flavours. Overall the white vintage has produced aromatic and balanced wines.

Utterly awful!!! Nothing good to say.... I would never usually through wine away.... but straight in the plug hole! 🤢

Not the usual but good!

4 stars

Not the usual chardonnay taste but i still loved it, for those wondering about the different taste they should really have read the notes first. Really nice just wasnt what i expected :)

Paired well with my plug hole.

1 stars

It tastes really smoky and has a strange bitter after taste. Couldn't even finish a glass so poured it down the drain. Not like any chardonnay I've had before, tasted more like a peaty whisky.

Oakey and full bodied - just how I like it!

5 stars

My favourite Chardonnay at the moment- but judging from other reviews it's a bit like 'marmite'. This Chardonnay is a full bodied one and oakey (like chewing on a plank of wood!) -it is NOT a light, fruity accompaniment to fish!! Don't buy it if that's what you're after - this is heady stuff.

Rich and full bodied

5 stars

Lovely, inky, rich and full bodied. Very pleasant to drink on its own. Would definitely recommend, especially when it's on offer.

Very disappointed with this wine. There is no tas

1 stars

Very disappointed with this wine. There is no taste to it at all, a good white wine should leave at least a few seconds worth of taste. Probably ok to use when cooking sauces. Had I looked properly at time of purchase I would have put it back on the shelf when I noticed it was Californian. Not keen on Californian white wines at all. It wasn't cheap, I expected a better wine.

Not a typical Chardonnay

1 stars

Normally love Chardonnay but this is the worst I have ever tasted. Can't describe taste but horrible aftertaste. Would never buy again.

The best chardonnay ever great flavour and silky smooth

Awful

1 stars

Truly awful wine - pure sugar - that bad I poured it down the drain. Avoid if you have any sort of a palate. Can I give it zero stars!

Coconut flavoured wine.

1 stars

Simply awful wine. If you like your Chardonnay to taste of coconut (Malibu) then this is the one for you. Very disappointing.
