This is the kind of wine that makes you wake up in a cold sweat, because you’ll suddenly panic that you didn’t fill the cellar with enough of it.

Cold Sweat is a series of three Syrahs from the 2015 vintage, exploring the unique terroir of cool-climate Eden Valley. Together they’ve been described as a “fascinating trilogy of single-vineyard wines” by the expert critics at JancisRobinson.com.

The winemakers, Matt and John, sourced the grapes for this one from their mate David in Moculta. Dark, brooding and savoury, it pulses with black cherry, spiced plum crumble, mint, dried flowers, earthy undergrowth, meatiness and tar. Cold Sweat Moculta Syrah is the most concentrated and indulgent of the triumvirate, so save this one till last if you’re doing a tasting flight of the three.

Set up by Essex boy Matt Gant and South Australian John Retsas (the latter taking sole ownership of the company in June 2021), First Drop is part winery and part frivolous merrymaking in a ginormous warehouse abandoned by Penfolds. The brand crafts grapes grown by their friends into fun-loving and easy-going wines with remarkable distinction and texture. They also do this without using animal products in the fining process, making the entire range vegan friendly.

"Deep and decadent on the nose with plum, dried-meat and leather aromas. Some tar. Full-bodied yet fresh. Round and silky tannins. Juicy finish. Tangy acidity."
95 Points, James Suckling
