First Drop Wines is a multi-award winning Halliday rated – 5 red star winery.
Based in the heart of the Australian wine industry, this Barossa winery set to go to the next level, spearheaded by its iconic ‘Mother’s Milk’ Barossa Shiraz. The last five consecutive vintages of ‘Mother’s Milk’ Barossa Shiraz have been awarded 90+ points by Wine Spectator.
Not a sledgehammer style, this Barossa Shiraz is made for drinking! Soft, slurpy and textured it is balanced with good acidity, which refreshes the palate and makes you go back for a second / third glass. The wine is matured sur lie for 12 months in 3 and 4 year old French oak hogsheads.
A complex nose of dark cherry and blackberry aromas with a hint of forest floor and spice. Would pair well with a rich beef dish such as Foodnutt’s Beef & Red Wine Ragu
You can drink now or cellar for another 5-8 years.

Wine Business Magazine | November/December 2020. Mike Bennie – 93 points
Warm and rich, soft and supple, a flow of pretty forest berry jolly vibes with liberal cinnamon, raisin and stewed plum chiming in. Has that almost impossibly velvet texture going on, feels slurpy and oh so very drinkable from first sip. Mass appeal, in its way. A reliable guzzler.
