First Drop, Mother’s Milk, Shiraz, 2016
The First Drop Mothers Milk is 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.
Sourced from 3 unique vineyards, it is fruit laden, savoury and dangerously easy to drink! It is matured for 12 months in French oak hogsheads to allow the fruit to express itself. This wine has a complex nose of dark cherry and blackberry aromas with a hint of forest floor and spice. On the palate, there is vibrant dark cherry and blackberry fruit with a hint of ‘wombat rolled in allspice’ balanced with an even, textural palate with soft, supple tannins.
