Wine tasting notes

With emphasis on red fruits and flora notes the Yalumba FDR1A shows tapenade, fennel, plums and dark cherries with a distinctly saline minerality. The powdery tannins give a firm impression that supports the mouth-watering drive of fruit, with a compact structure that is poised to gain complexity. Remarkably seductive

Food matching

Enjoy with seared duck breast and roasted fennel or butternut pumpkin and sage risotto

Expert reviews

James Suckling (2014) - 94 pts

A rich nose of ripe dark berries, cedar, chocolate and cool earthy notes. The palate has a very elegant feel with super fine tannins and a very convincingly focused, plush, long and balanced finish. A blend of 71% cabernet sauvignon and 29% shiraz. Drink or hold.


James Halliday (2014) - 94 pts

Bold and beautiful with blackcurrant, bay leaf, tobacco and sweet cedar wood flavours flooding the palate. Cabernet plays a leading role but then sweet plum notes rise with air, lending it a cuddlier aspect in the process. Firm, ripe tannin helps tie it all together; there is no question over either the quality or cellarability here.
