Overview

This is the ultimate summer cleanser. Forget your G&T, this Arneis from the cool climbs of the Adelaide Hills will quench and refresh. Citrus and lime zest with a hint of nashi pear and minerality.

But this wine isn’t just an aperitivo tease. Its purity of fruit, zippy persistence, and finely textured finish make it the ‘perfect match’ for a feast of dishes. You’ll love it….we love it!

Expert Reviews

2011 was a game-changing vintage across south-eastern Australia, a tough, cool season that worked magic with some vineyards. Bella Coppia is cooler, calmer and fresher than ever, a wine of dazzling acidity and mouthfilling texture. Crunchy lemons, grapefruit zest, a hint of almost ripe honeydew and a varietal note of dried grass are all part of the parade here, making for a perfect match with sushi and sashimi. This could just be the finest First Drop Arneis yet. Rating 93 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly (JUL/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.
