Description

First Drop The Matador Garnacha is a silky, seductive drink. They have taken all the classics flavours of Garnacha (Grenache), raspberries, florals, spice, Turkish delight, strawberries. Then they’ve loaded them onto this beautifully soft and textural palate. There is a lot to love about First Drop The Matador, it reminds me of the wines from Rolf Binder that I have loved for many, many years.

In 2004 First Drop came into being. Two friends, Matt ‘Gantos’ Gant and John ‘JR’ Retsas, make wines to drink, rather than pontificate upon. Their base is the ‘Home of the Brave’ in the Barossa. The style here is silky, textural, drinkable wines with a hint of funk and a lot of interest. They source fruit vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa and offer a diversity of styles.

Barossa Valley

One of the major wine regions of Australia. Known for making great Shiraz by any standard as well as Grenache, Mataro, Semillon and much more. There has been a lot of work finding the sub-regions that excel for each style and variety planted.

Garnacha

Spain’s gift to the world. We know it as Grenache and I think everyone has a soft spot for it in some way. Almost too exuberant in expressing its sweet red fruits and high alcohol, it often needs a little bit of other wines to add moderation, structure and depth. Much like Abbott and Costello. Despite this, the wines of Priorat, Chateauneuf du Pape, Rioja and Aussie GSMs have an amazing ability to age for the long term.
