Description

First Drop “Mother’s Milk” Barossa Shiraz 2019

Fruit laden, savoury and dangerously easy to drink! First Drop “Mother’s Milk” Barossa Shiraz 2019 is made for drinking!

Garnet red colour with purple hues. The complex bouquet exudes dark cherry, blackberry, hints of forest floor, cedar and spice box. Soft, slurpy and textured with vibrant flavours of black cherries, blackberries, dark plum and dark chocolate. The full-bodied palate has a lively acidity and soft, supple tannins. So bold and refreshing, it will have you going back for a second… and then a third glass.

100% Shiraz. First Drop sources premium fruit from 3 unique vineyards to bring you this gorgeous expression of Barossa Shiraz.

Darren’s vineyard is to the north of Seppeltsfield in the west of the Barossa, 285 metres a.s.l. on clay over limestone soils.

Matthew and Jono’s vineyard is to the north of Kalimna in the north of the Barossa, 312 metres a.s.l. on red clay with sand and ironstone soils.

Milton’s vineyard is to the east of Eden Valley in the east of the Barossa, 460 metres a.s.l. on clay over ironstone and quartz soils.

The fruit goes through crushing and destemming, then fermentation at temperatures between 20–25°C for 8 days on skins. The ferment is managed through a variety of techniques, including ‘aerative pump overs’ and ‘drain and returns’, which assist in extracting colour, flavour and tannin from the grapes. At the end of fermentation, the juice is drained/pressed, and transferred to 3- and 4-year-old French oak hogsheads to undergo malolactic fermentation (MLF). Post-MLF, sulphur dioxide is added, and the wine matures sur lie for 12 months.

Ageing potential: Will continue to mature for 5–8 years from vintage. Indulge now or reward yourself later.
