Yalumba FDR1A

Yalumba FDR1A

In 1974 Yalumba created an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz blend known simply as Fine Dry Red 1A or Yalumba FDR1A. The wine became a legend in winemaking circles, appreciated for its fruit expression and restrained power. Sourced from exceptional sites within the cool rugged slopes of Eden Valley, FDR1A is a testament to winemaking and viticultural craftsmanship

The grapes for FDR1A are sourced entirely from vineyards within Eden Valley. The four Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and two Shiraz vineyards have been selected to showcase the elegance and purity of fruit that the region is so well known for.

Medium dense crimson red in colour, this wine exhibits a defined and perfumed floral aromatic of powdery spices, violets and maraschino cherries, combined with anise, cedar and stalky currants. The palate is medium to full bodied in style; this is a very fine and elegant wine layered with sweet fruit complexity. It shows a plush and seamlessly textured palate that is complete with long, fine and powdery tannins.

Enjoy Yalumba FDR1A with beef fillet, duck liver parfait, pomme noisette and petit beetroot.
