Vinification Details

  • 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.


  • 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

  • Modern winemaking comes with an arsenal of tools and technology, but nothing will turn mediocre grapes into a winning wine. So, we started with one of the world's best growing regions, California, and built strong partnerships with hundreds of grape growers across the state. We work closely with them all year long, walking the vineyards with them and tasting grapes on the vine. When harvest arrives, we have our first pick of those grapes from over 400 growers.

Wonderful, heady Chardonnay

5 stars

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!

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 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.
