A former James Suckling Top 100 Value & the top-rated Shiraz in the Wine Spectator under $20, we're blown away by the 2021 vintage of First Drop's Mother's Milk Shiraz! In three straight vintages, winemaker Matt Gant proves why he was voted "Winemaker of the Year" during his days at St Hallett. Crafted from estate vineyards in Southern Barossa, this plush, elegant Shiraz has huge aromatics of dark cherries and blackberries. Fine tannins and cedar notes are added with 10 months in French and American oak.

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

"A compelling, fun red on a juicy, fresh frame, with smooth, polished tannins and fresh pomegranate and maraschino cherry flavors at the core, plus details of milk chocolate, nutmeg, white peppercorn and an appealing hint of toasted herbs and fresh earth. Reveals tannins that firm up on the finish, which packs a spicy kick. Drink now through 2033." The Wine Spectator, 92 Points

James Suckling: 92 Points

"Aromas of black fruit, pepper, dark licorice and overturned earth. Medium- to full-bodied with creamy texture and fine tannins. It has a savory fruit character with some salinity to it. Drink or hold. Screw cap." James Suckling, 92 Points

Wine Advocate: 91 Points

"2021 was a lovely vintage in Barossa—cool, long and with a return to moderate yields after two years of aggressively low yields and warm conditions. So here, the 2021 Mother's Milk Shiraz is fine and detailed, with loads of plush, voluminous fruit, in keeping with the style of the wine, but it is imbued with a little extra focus and precision, courtesy of the vintage. Nicely done." The Wine Advocate, 91 Points
