The Bandy is Back


Superb new release of this almost 'cult' wine. Made in a small quantity and available in only a few selected NZ outlets and at the Three Dark Horses cellar door in Australia. The previous two vintages have been hugely successful at wine shows (including Golds & Trophy Champion Cabernet NZIWS). More importantly this label has developed a serious following with our customers who recognise the quality and value it offers.


Three Dark Horses is the project the of former Coriole winemaker Matt Broomhead with his father Alan and grandfather Frank (who recently passed away) – the Three Dark Horses. Their focus is on producing small batch, basket pressed, hand made, and affordable wines of character sourcing grapes from old vines throughout the McLaren Vale. 

Best described as a "Blockbuster" – this 2019 is again inky dark (glass staining) with flavours of vanilla and ripe dark berry compote. Warming and inviting with a big, mouthfilling palate. Fine graphite-like tannins from the 14 months in French and American oak coat the mouth. The words 'sumptuous and generous' easily come to mind and, even as a young wine, is deliciously drinkable. It will also cellar very well. It totally over delivers for the price.


The 2019 has just been released so too soon for reviews yet…


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Lifted aromas of black fruits, choc mint and wood spice. Flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant. Choc mint also plays a role. Medium to full bodied but soft through the palate with fine grained tannins and a subtle spice finish to close. Cellaring potential: 5+ years.
McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon from the Home Block, Schuller Rd (Blewitt Springs) hand-picked and Hancock (Chalk Hill Rd closer to McLaren Vale township) machine harvested. Vine age: 20 and 50 years (Home) and 40 years (Hancock). 7 day open ferment with regular pump overs. Basket pressed. 14 months in French and American oak (20% new). Bottled without fining."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"It is gorgeously fruited and richly expressed on the nose showing crème de cassis, vanilla, roasted hazelnut and chocolate characters with elegant spicy nuances. The palate delivers excellent fruit power and opulence backed by fine-grained tannins, leading to a lengthy comforting finish. Highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2028."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
