Half & Half lives up to its name. It’s made from equal parts typical Shiraz and quirky Monastrell. Half the grapes come from their mate Michael’s vineyard near Rosedale in the southwest of the Barossa, while the remainder comes from Joel’s vineyard in Eden Valley in the east. The vintage was a game of two halves, it started well before frost set in, then it got really hot before cooling right down again. It combines new with old, and modern with classic. Full-flavoured and brimming with cherry, spice and wildflowers; it’s as good with a barbeque as it is with slow-cooked stews. First Drop may have created a new classic.

Set up by Essex boy Matt Gant and South Australian John Retsas, First Drop is part winery and part frivolous merrymaking in a ginormous warehouse abandoned by Penfolds. This duo 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.

"This really is one of my favourite First Drop wines… A very clever blend. I’d love to taste it in five years."
