A dark horse indeed. A succulent, crowd pleasing style of Californian Chardonnay with spicy oak at its heart. The slick Dark Horse label is a brand from Gallo’s stables. Rich with buttery, creamy caramel, it has an abundance of vanilla spiced mango tropical fruit. There is some balancing sweetness bringing even more flesh to the texture, but the wine leaves with a lengthy savoury finish. It is the kind of wine that will suit all seasons and will be loved by big creamy white lovers.
