Nacional goes international. The Eusebio of the classic Portuguese varieties, Touriga Nacional is ideally suited to the maritime climate of McLaren Vale. A fast, lively red with a great right foot, this “Vinho do Vale” is made for immediate enjoyment at all team events. We’re sure it’s going to kick goals for you!

Touriga Nacional is Portugal’s superstar grape variety, used in many of the finest Ports. So, what’s it doing on the other side of the planet in Australia’s McLaren Vale?

Having a hell of a good time in the maritime climate of the Willunga foothills is what. First Drop was set up by Essex boy Matt Gant and South Australian John Retsas. They get these grapes from their mate Joch’s vineyard and mature the wine in old French oak for a year. What bursts out of the bottle is a lively, energetic red with notes of dark chocolate, Earl Grey tea, fountain pen ink, blueberries, plums, blackberries and smoke. Think Port, but without the sweetness or alcohol level.

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.
