Wine and Spirits distributor Select Brands recently hosted a grand event showcasing hundreds of wines, spirits and gourmet foods to prospective and existing customers.

I had the great opportunity to visit the event and do some of my favourite things: discover and taste new wines. While I did not get to taste them all, here are some highlights of what was new to the market:

First Drop Wines, Australia

This winery was created in 2004 by two friends, Matt 'Gantos' Gant and John 'JR' Retsas, with a desire to make wines to drink, not just appreciate, hence 'Mother's Milk'. Their approach is fun and simple; their labels are artistic, hilarious and tell stories. They make wines with grapes sourced from vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa. On display from First Drop Wines was the 2016 Mother's Milk which is a soft, smooth Barossa Shiraz and the 'Mother's Ruin' which is a restrained, but balanced McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon.
