    Winner of 5 Stars & No.5 rated Australian Shiraz in Cuisine magazine’s 2021 Aussie Shiraz tasting – it was also the No.1 rated “Best Buy” Shiraz, the wines singled out as offering the best bang for your buck!

    Then consider two of the other top five wines cost $250 and $100 respectively. This wine with this award at this price is an obvious bargain! After all, you know what they say, never underestimate a dark horse!

    The Cuisine judges loved its “rich, spicy red fruit” and said “this weighty, mouth-filling Shiraz punches above its weight for the price.”

    After making wine in Italy and France former Coriole winemaker Matt Broomhead returned to the McLaren Vale to kick off his own gig with Dad Alan and 94 year old Grandad Frank. They’re the Three Dark Horses, they’re seriously boutique and they’re producing some seriously good, seriously affordable wine.

    And this Cuisine award is no flash in the pan. In the past six vintages this wine has won a Trophy, four Gold medals, three 95/100 critic ratings and now the No.1 rated Best Buy Australian Shiraz in Cuisine. The 3DH crew are super excited about this 2020 release – Broomhead senior (Matt’s Dad) reckons this is the best wine made to date under this label!

    A former “Dark Horse Winery of the Year” winner by James Halliday. He’s yet again rated them as a Five Star winery and said “‘I’m very confident that Matt Broomhead’s venture is destined for greater things in the coming years, as its newly acquired vineyard and onsite winery come on-stream.”

    This fruit comes from 20-50 year old vines,100% basket pressed (an expensive, labour intensive winery tool used to produce high quality fruit!), aged 12 months in oak. Dark berries and spice, soft, rich and plush. You’ll be seriously impressed. The smart money is on this horse yet again. Drink now or cellar for up to a decade from vintage.
