Background

First Drop was born in 2004. Conceived by two friends, Matt ‘Gantos’ Gant and John ‘JR’ Retsas, with a desire to make wines to drink, not just appreciate. Mother’s Milk! Based at the ‘Home of the Brave’ in the Barossa, First Drop is making wines with flavour, texture and a splash of funk; from fruit sourced from unique vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa to bring you a diverse, deliciously exciting and thought provoking line up of flavours. Seriously fun! A wide, textured palate of grainy tannins support cherry, earthy, savoury flavours and an explosion of spice - sumac, clove, Asian 5 spice, Szechuan pepper.

Tasting Notes

Full flavoured, with texture and a splash of funk. A wine to drink, not just appreciate. Bottoms up! First Drop is about life, flavour and fun. A story of two friends with Old World roots in a New World of opportunity. The booze is crafted with a flair for creativity; a twist of innovation and a sensitivity for tradition. This approach is embodied in this wine, a 50:50 blend of Old and New – it’s full flavoured, with texture and a splash of funk. A wine to drink, not just appreciate. Garnet red with purple hues. A complex nose of cherry, violet, earth and spice aromas and hints of chocolate.
