Fat of the Land Ebenezer Single Vineyard Shiraz 2016
“Serious, smoky and long.” – Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages
Fat of the Land is a celebration of Barossa. This region is famed for the diversity of the Shiraz produced in each of its sub-regions, and First Drop revel in this by taking grapes from the finest single vineyards and using them to create their flagship range. This one hails from Ebenezer in the north of the Barossa, and a vineyard owned by their mate Anthony. They age it for 20 months in oak, and what they draw from those barrels is rich with Black Forest gateau, cassis, vanilla, cinnamon, barbequed meat, blackberries and black pepper. It’s a phenomenal piece of winemaking and so different from the Seppeltsfield version.
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.
