Overview

Fruit laden and structured – fun, yet serious!

This wine demonstrates the perfect marriage of these two Piedmontese varieties – the fruit and acidity of Barbera melds perfectly with the savoury character and structure of Nebbiolo. Although it’s an approachable style from a single vineyard near Kersbrook in the northern Adelaide Hills (340m above sea level on complex sandy clay loams over shale), it’s also serious kit!

Expert Reviews

(a 50/50 blend): Bright medium red. Spicy aromas of redcurrant, rhubarb and anise. Bright and sharply focused, offering youthful red fruit flavors and a hint of smoky herbs. Fresh and precise, with strong finishing spiciness and lingering florality. Rating 90 - Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, July 2012

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Matt ‘Gantos’ Gant and John ‘JR’ Retsas are two mates with a lifelong commitment to making kick-arse booze. These are wines with flavour, texture and a splash of funk, made with the best fruit from unique patches of the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale.

First Drop is about life, flavour, and fun – wines to drink! You might have noticed that we have a pretty artistic approach to our packaging too. Whether it’s the Hogarth-inspired Mother’s Ruin illustration or the funked-up street art on the 2% Shiraz, this is booze that looks as good as it tastes.
