Winemaker Notes

A dense crimson red, this wine has distinctive characters of cedar, fresh spices and stalky redcurrants combine with black cherry fruits and black olives. The medium to full bodied palate is layered with sweet fruit compote and dark fruits. A richly concentrated wine wrapped in a fine package, complete with long, fine grainy tannins. Built to handle at least ten years in the cellar.

Match with char-grilled T-bone steak, chunky fries and hollandaise.

JH 96
Australian Wine Companion
Medium crimson-purple; a wine with a long and proud history dating back to the 1970s; a totally harmonious blend of the two varieties, blackcurrant, blackberry, plum and black cherry woven together with fine tannins and quality oak. A perfect example of a medium-bodied red wine.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, 2009 FDR 1A Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz presents an earthy / meaty / savory character with notes of game, soy, damp loam and yeast extract over a core of black cherries and blackberries with touches of white pepper, Mediterranean herbs and cloves. Concentrated and taut in the mouth, it offers a solid backbone of medium to firm level grainy tannins and crisp acidity, finishing long and savory.

Yalumba, Eden Valley, Barossa, Australia
2009 FDR1A Cabernet/Shiraz
Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery, founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith. From modest beginnings, the Yalumba Wine Company has grown to become one of Australia's most successful wineries, owned by 5th generation Robert Hill-Smith. Yalumba regularly receives accolades for its outstanding wines, and for its leadership in viticultural innovation and sustainable farming. Yalumba was the first winery in the world to be recognized with the Climate Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (2007), earned the International Green Apple Gold Award from House of Commons (U.K. 2011), and was the first winery outside the United States to win the BRIT International Award of Excellence in Sustainable Winegrowing Competition (2013). The Yalumba portfolio commences with the fresh and flavorsome varietal wines of the Y Series, then moves up to the Samuel’s Garden line to capture the essence of the classic Rhone-influenced varietals of the Barossa and Eden Valleys, explores sub-regional complexity through innovative, modern wines in the Hand Pickedline, and culminates with the coveted, collectible Yalumba Rare and Fine wines including Signature and Octavius.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
