Quoting Del Boy, First Drop say that this is fabrique belgique. A tongue-in-cheek, French-style Chardonnay that your Mum will love. Flavours of tarte aux pommes with hints of almond, biscuit & marzipan on a tight, textured palate. Part barrel-fermented in new French oak barriques using indigenous yeasts, and matured sur lie with weekly batonnage for 6 months.
Two kindred spirits from opposite sides of the globe but with a shared commitment to kick-arse booze, Matt and JR are all about what they call Mother's Milk: wines full of life, fun and flavour. They use eclectic varieties from unique vineyards in the great regions of the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale mix innovation with tradition, and stick them in eye-catching bottles. They make wines for drinking, not just appreciating. How could we not be fans of that?
