Wines from venerable and elite vineyards whose provenance have been identified for individuality, consistency and a unique expression of Barossa terroir.
In 1974 Yalumba created an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz blend known simply as Fine Dry Red 1A. 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.

Our FSW8B vines are encouraged to grow a dense canopy reducing air flow and encouraging the infection by and growth of Botrytis cinerea. Botrytised grapes are difficult to press and several pressings are required to liberate all of the viscous nectar. Good quality juices are hard to ferment, so a special yeast strain is used to balance the ideal sugar levels, allowing the wine to find its natural balance.
