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.

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.
