Yalumba FDR1A Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2014

The grapes for FDR1A are sourced entirely from vineyards
within the Eden Valley. The two 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.
WINEMAKING
Select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes were handpicked and crushed
to our 8 tonne open top stainless steel fermenters. The balance of the grapes were
machine harvested and fermented in our larger static fermenters. The wild yeasts
present on the grape skins initiated fermentation, and cultured yeasts were added
to complete fermentation. The result is a wine of excellent depth of colour, richness
and complexity. After draining and pressing off skins the wine was matured in a
combination of French oaks.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS
Good winter and early spring rains set the vines up well, while a windy spring led to
uneven fruit set. The warm and dry January and February was suddenly halted by
100mm of rain within twenty four hours, followed by moderate temperatures that
caused ripening to slow down. The long ripening period and moderate crops produced
wines with intense flavours combined with some of the best tannin and natural acids
we have seen.
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
