Barossa Valley, South Australia. 13.5%
FDR1A stands for “fine dry red” a Cabernet Shiraz blend aged in French, Hungarian and American oak. I’m not sure what the point of this wine in Yalumba’s portfolio when they already have The Signature cab/shiraz blend which is supposed to be “the finest red of the vintage”.
Anyway this isn’t a patch on the 2006 Signature. The fruit doesn’t sing in anything like the same way.
Heavily oaky dense, old fashioned wine.
