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. Bottoms up!

Expert Reviews

Peppery, animale, red and blue fruit, some choc-licorice. Medium bodied, it has cleaner lines than the 2010, fine acid and a spice laden personality of good definition and interest. It’s a touch green and ashen on the finish, but drinks very well. 90 points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (NOV/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes


Garnet red with purple hues


A complex nose of cherry, violet, earth and spice aromas and hints of white pepper


A wide, textured palate of grainy tannins support cherry, earthy, savoury flavours and an explosion of spice - sumac, clove, Asian 5 spice, Szechuan pepper.

Grub Match

Cassoulet, lamb chops, stuffed tomatoes


Drink up, but also a 5-8 year proposition.

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.
