A great deal on this new McLaren Vale Shiraz. This single-vineyard of old vines (20-50 years) produces a red of impressive quality and pedigree. Despite the low price, it is made in small volumes by the ex-Coriole winemaker, and is in fact basket-pressed before being aged many months in French and American oak. It's a big, bold and inky old school Shiraz from a winery rated 5 Stars by Halliday. A steal at this low price!

Its Origins

"Three Dark Horses is the new project for former Coriole winemaker Matt Broomhead. After vintages in southern Italy (2007) and the Rhone Valley he returned to McLaren Vale in late 2009 and, with his father Alan, buys quality grapes, thanks to the long experience they both have in the region. The third dark horse is Matt's grandfather, a vintage regular. But things are changing. In Nov '17 the business acquired a 5ha vineyard in McLaren Vale, and will build an onsite winery. They are expanding the plantings with grenache blanc, clairette and touriga nacional, and reworking some of the shiraz vines planted in 1964. Part of the vineyard is sand soil-based interspersed with ironstone, a highly desirable mix for shiraz and cabernet sauvignon." -- James Halliday

What The Critics Say

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"Opulent and generous, it's gorgeously perfumed on the nose showing dark fruit richness with dark chocolate, cedar, anise and violet aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's dense and wonderfully textured. It's plush and persistent with layers of delicious flavours. AU$22.00. www.3dh.com.au. April 2020." Drink 2020 - 2031
