This is one of the nicest Chardonnay’s I have tasted, doesn’t leave a tingly feel in the throat, like some do. Was a gift, now I’m hooked.
Best Chardonnay, but give it a chance
When I first drank this wine, I was quite surprised by the taste. I can't quite explain it, but I wasn't sure I liked it - It was an unusual, slightly petrol taste - and I do not enjoy drinking petrol - but for some reason, I found it compelling. Maybe because it was so different. Ever the soldier, I persevered, and it has now become my absolute favourite Chardonnay and well worth the couple of extra pounds compared to other mass produced Californian wines. I find this is a great wine with food and drinking on its own. It is robust enough to have with darker meats if you don't like red.
Wonderful, heady Chardonnay
Oaky, caramel-esque, mouth-full white. Obv a marmite wine, judging by these reviews (although wonder at the haters' palates, weird tastes some are getting from it!), but if you like rich wines, perhaps more of a red drinker, you will probably love this. Redolent of toffee apples on a crisp, Autumn evening. Delicious. Dangerously moreish!
Avoid unless you plan on using it as drain cleaner
Bought this off the back of others from Dark Horse that I enjoyed - this however I was really disappointed with this. Like others in this review section, I broke a habit of a lifetime and poured this down the sink. It didn’t taste great, but then followed a horrible after taste that I can only describe as cream soda (I don’t know why as I haven’t had that for years). Avoid at all costs - but I definitely would recommend their Malbec.

Utterly awful!!! Nothing good to say.... I would never usually through wine away.... but straight in the plug hole! 🤢
Not the usual but good!
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.
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!
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
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
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.
