Overview

This restrained, well balanced expression of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon is an ode to the ‘luncheon claret’, but it’s not as green and austere as that favourite lunchtime libation at the gentleman’s club. Early picked fruit from a vineyard with good breeding in the Willunga foothills results in an elegant, varietal style, that has classic First Drop drinkability.

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.
