Jamie Goode's Wine Blog, 'Some tasty wines from First Drop' September 2011.
First Drop The Big Blind 2009 Adelaide Hills, Australia
A blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera. 14% alcohol. Pale-ish cherry red colour. Sweetly aromatic nose with notes of ginger, spice, cherry, plum. There’s a combination of sweet fruit and a savoury twist. The palate is fresh and spicy, with some grip and attractive sweet and sour cherry character. A distinctive, characterful wine. 92/100
