Description

I am so excited to have First Drop 2% Shiraz back in stock. First Drop Two Per Cent Shiraz 2020 is classic Barossa Shiraz with an interesting little addition – 2% Moscatel or Muscat, a highly perfumed grape more frequently seen in sweet wines. This addition gives the wine intoxicating aromas which make it better than your average Barossa Shiraz, as do its elegance and the effects of very little new oak used in the ageing process so that the oak effect is subtle.

 

First Drop Two Per Cent Shiraz 2020 has intense aromas of bramble fruits with pepper, chocolate and spice putting in an appearance. On the palate this is a luscious wine, creamy and smooth with a wide range of intense flavours – sweet dark berry fruits including blueberries, dark chocolate and a hint of tobacco and earthiness kick in as the complex flavours unfold. The finish is very long and full of juicy black fruit with a hint of almonds & smokiness. It is quite full bodied but tannins are very gentle making this very smooth to drink. It is well made and well balanced with a long creamy finish. Delicious!

How to enjoy this wine

Recommended with beef – grilled , roast or stewed – and would pair well with steak in pepper sauce. Shiraz is often quoted as a wine to have a barbecues and this one would certainly go well with smoky, barbecued meats including ribs in sweet sauce.  Also goes well with most hard cheese. First Drop Wines suggest Oreos or offal!

 

Serve at: 14 – 16°C

Producer's Notes

“Colour – Dark plum. Aroma – Lifted black fruit aromas with a hints of earth and spice. Palate – Rich, phat, dark berry fruits, with hints of dark chocolate and Indian ink, supported by a dense core of tannins.

 

VINTAGE 2020: Below average rainfall over winter followed by a very dry spring; with high winds and cold nights in November disrupting flowering; and hot, dry conditions in December and early January reducing bunch and berry size; resulted in yields at least 50% below the 10-year average. Thankfully a cooler February and March led to slower ripening despite the low yields. Whilst variability within vineyards, caused by the earlier extremes in the season, meant for tricky picking decisions and reds that show great depth and structure. 2020 was yet another challenging vintage, to rival 2019, but again it’s delivered one of which to be proud.”
