A wine for hedonists. This soft textured expression of Shiraz, brimming with luscious dark berry fruits, has been matured in 75% new French oak hogsheads (300l) for 24 months on the lees to further enhance its texture. Enjoy it now, or in 10 to 15 years time if you have a puritanical streak.
First Drop is about life, fun and flavour. In 2005 mates Matt ‘Gantos’ Gant, an Essex boy, and John ‘JR’ Retsas, an Aussie, made a lifelong commitment to crafting artisan wine. Their eclectic collection of varietals and blends are all lovingly grown in the best bits of the Barossa and McLaren Vale. These are wines made with a flair for creativity, a twist of innovation and a sensibility for tradition. Wines with flavour, texture and a splash of funk. The Barossa is an amazing place with a diverse history from which a great community has grown living off the Fat of the Land. Famed for its Shiraz vineyards, some dating back to the 19th century, the wines from this small, but proud region are as unique and divergent as its history and community. One can make such varied expressions of Shiraz, due to the different meso-climates of district, the elevation range, and the myriad of soil types that are to be found throughout the Barossa. The Fat of the Land series seeks to showcase the districts of the Barossa, and the contrasting styles of Shiraz that can be made here.
