96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
Three Dark Horses is the new project for former Coriole winemaker Matt Broomhead. When the opportunity arose in 2009 to make wine from Bruno Romano’s old vineyard in the Seaview sub region of McLaren Vale- Matt teamed up with his father Alan and grandfather Frank and the Three Dark Horses were born. Today Matt and Alan run this small label with Matt’s 89-year-old grandfather Frank a vintage regular. Their focus is on producing small batch, hand made, and affordable wines of character. All of the work is done in our small facility 10 minutes north of McLaren Vale.
“A whole berry wild ferment, matured in used French oak for 15 months. Its deep, dense colour translates into a deep, dense, velvety palate of exceptional quality. How Mark Broomhead manages to secure grapes of sufficient quality to make his wines is an Australian Story.” Drink to 2036 – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
