Cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving.

The fun and irreverent First Drop label was founded by Matt ‘Gantos’ Gant and John ‘JR’ Retsas, two friends who spotted a gap in the market for delicious, unpretentious wines made with top quality fruit from Australia’s finest wine regions. Together the duo carefully source grapes from the Barossa Valley, the Adelaide Hills, and the McLaren Vale, blending together complimentary varieties to create easy-drinking yet powerful wines.

Their Mother’s Milk Shiraz has a cult following in Australia and was named one of James Suckling’s Top 100 Australian Wines in 2019. The fruit is sourced from just three vineyards in the Barossa Valley with 12 months of ageing in French oak hogshead barrels.

The result is a rich and juicy Shiraz which is bursting with crushed cassis, blackberries and wild plums along with undertones of spice, dark chocolate, dried herbs and sunbaked earth. On the palate there’s a generous full body, firm tannins and a well-developed structure which will respond well to a few more years in the cellar. If you’d rather drink it now, pair with a hearty rabbit stew, barbecued ribs, a rump steak, or even fresh pasta served with a wild boar or beef ragu.
