About The Wine
As the McLaren Vale region heads more in the direction of 'premium wine', those little $20-$25 gems are becoming harder to find.
Thankfully, ex-Coriole winemaker Matt Broomhead has made it his mission to keep the quality high and the price low with his own label, Three Dark Horses and doing a mighty fine job of it.
This Shiraz shows the classic McLaren Vale power with some spicy inflections from a portion of whole bunch ferment. It's dark, broody, bursting with fruit and generosity.
It's a very handy example of Shiraz and top value to boot.
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.
