The First Drop Full Fat White | First Drop was born in 2004. Conceived by two friends, Matt ‘Gantos’ Gant and John ‘JR’ Retsas, with a desire to make wines to drink, not just appreciate. Mother’s Milk! Based at the ‘Home of the Brave’ in the Barossa, First Drop is making wines with flavour, texture and a splash of funk; from fruit sourced from unique vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa to bring you a diverse, deliciously exciting and thought-provoking line up of flavours.
The First Drop Full Fat White is a blend of 4 different grapes, each contributing different elements to the wine: Pinot Gris gives a zesty, citrus backbone, Arneis adds flavours of pear and grapefruit, Chardonnay loads on tropical fruit flavours and a drop of Moscatel adds aromatic floral notes. After blending, the wine is then left for 4 months “sur lie” in stainless steel tanks. The resulting palate is luscious, with lemon curd and lime brulée flavours to the fore, undercut by thirst-quenching drinkability.
The ultimate summer cleanser! Enjoy with a bucket-load of seafood.
