About The Wine

Winemaker Matt Broomhead sources the fruit for this little gem from 90-year-old dry-grown bush vines in McLaren Vale.

It's classic McLaren Vale Grenache: brightly fruited, highly perfumed, and powerful.

A portion of whole bunch ferment adds additional layers of spice and a more serious structure than you might expect from a $25 red. 

It's great value and an excellent example of the bang-for-your buck you can get in McLaren Vale reds if you know where to look.

About Three Dark Horses

Three Dark Horses is the passion project of ex-Coriole winemaker, Matt Broomhead.

Together with his father and grandfather, the three Broomhead men have embarked on a mission to make some of McLaren Vale's best value wines.

Focusing on mainly Rhone varieties, they are endeavouring to produce "small batch, hand made, and affordable wines of character."

This is a small, family-owned affair that is consistently releasing delicious, full-flavoured wines that showcase the best aspects of the McLaren Vale region.

Halliday Wine Companion

"The decision to only use old oak and limit the time in barrel to 9 months was the right call, the alternative of new oak and 12 months would have made a better wine, but the price would have had to be $50 or more. The vinification threw the spotlight onto the vibrant clear colour and the gloriously juicy red berry flavours." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
