Three Dark Horses Chardonnay 2022 

This is a best bet when it comes to an outsider coming in for a place. 

3 Dark Horses we have promoted in a red sense, now its time to show you the Chardonnay!  

"A single vineyard Chardonnay from the McLaren Vale. The juice is cold pressed and oxidatively handled to tank. It is cold settled for 5 days then racked to oak (50% new) for fermentation by wild yeast. The finished wine is left in barrel for 12 months and regularly lees stirred.

A very interesting nose of grilled nuts, vanilla and nougat. There is underlying peach and tropical fruit aromas. The palate is all about texture. It has flavours of peach, vanilla and nougat with good acid and an even, long finish. Drinking exceptionally well in its youth but can also be laid down for 5+ years." Winery

"It's wonderfully ripe and lifted on the nose showing golden peach, rockmelon, vanilla and cedar characters. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent weight and succulent fruit intensity, beautifully framed by supple texture and juicy acidity. Upfront and generous, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2026." 5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
