Dark Horse Chardonnay

IMG_2143

This wine comes from ‘California’ – which is a massive place and seems a bit vague… Not entirely sure what to make of this wine – I liked it and it’s one of only a handful of wines that have made me say ‘wow’ this year.

Tasting notes: Straw colour. Wow! Butterscotch, caramel notes. Dry. Very drinkable. The ABC brigade will not like this wine – it’s ‘big’ and bold and very new world.
