Anything but ordinary

Winemaker, Beth Liston, knocked the dust off the traditional Chardonnay flavor profile to give this classic varietal a true Dark Horse makeover. Thanks to her signature mix of classic and innovative techniques, Dark Horse Chardonnay has made believers out of the very label-chasers who thought quality wine had to come at a price.

Where to buy

Beth's Method

BACK BLENDING

(or blending in unique varietals before finalizing the wine)

with Viognier and Gewürztraminer

RAPID SUR LIE AGING

(a pricey aging technique Beth has perfected at a reasonable cost)

MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION

(Or ML for the cool kids. A second fermentation that allows some of the more acidic flavors to mellow out)

FRENCH AND AMERICAN OAK AGING

What You'll Taste

The light sweetness of juicy, stone fruit flavors

A softer, creamier flavor ride

Divine, buttery notes with a smooth finish

The deep, toasty flavors of oak and vanilla
