Vinification Details

  • The grapes for our Dark Horse Merlot were harvested at optimum ripeness to ensure extraction of rich colours and velvety tannings. Warmer temperatures around 85°-88°F were used during fermentation in order to achieve more intense flavours and aromatics. After the fermentation was complete, the wine was aged on oak to add complexity and balance.

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 Merlot 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 vibrant flavours and aromas.
