“At First Drop Wines, we focus on making wines that are true to variety and speak of place”
First Drop was born in 2004. Conceived 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.
The Barossa Valley experienced mild conditions of generally below-average temperatures for the entire growing season, making for an elegant and classic vintage boasting the best acidities in many years
This Barossa Shiraz is made for drinking! Sourced from vineyards, in the Barossa & Eden Valleys it is fruit-laden, savoury and dangerously easy to drink! It is matured for 10 months in seasoned French oak hogsheads to allow the fruit to express itself.
Origin: Barossa Valley SA
Tasting Notes: A complex nose of dark cherry and blackberry aromas with a hint of forest floor and spice. Vibrant dark cherry and blackberry with a hint of ‘wombat rolled in all spice’ balanced with an even, textural palate with soft, supple tannins.
“Not a sledgehammer style, this Barossa Shiraz is made for drinking! Soft, slurpy and textured it is balanced with good acidity, which refreshes the palate and makes you go back for a second/third glass.”
