Professional Wine Reviews for Yalumba Fdr1a Museum Release 2005

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
Deep garnet colored with a hint of brick, the 2005 Fdr1A Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Museum Release offers notes of blackcurrant cordial, dried mulberries and preserved plums with nuances of incense, loose tobacco and cedar. Medium-bodied, ripe, expressive and wonderfully mature, it offers elegant blackberry preserves and spice box-laced fruit with soft, powdery tannins and lively acid before finishing long and multilayered.

Additional Information on Yalumba Fdr1a Museum Release 2005

Winery: Yalumba

Region: Barossa

Australia is known around the world for the high quality of its flavorful Shiraz wines, and Barossa Valley, near the city of Adelaide is surely the home of the finest Shiraz grapevines in the country. The first vineyards in the Barossa Valley were established in the late 19th century by German settlers, however today there are dozens of high quality and unique businesses operating in the region, making the most of the temperate continental climate the valley enjoys, and producing a wide range of wines made from various grape varietals. Whilst Shiraz grapes thrive particularly well in this part of Australia, there are now vineyards in Barossa Valley growing all kinds of red and white grape varietals, and showing a real flair for flavor, aroma and complexity brought about by a strong mix of traditional and modern techniques.

Country: Australia

Whilst every Australian state has some level of wine production, it is in South Australia and on the island of Tasmania where the finest wines are made to the highest quantities. Here, the scorching Australian sun is a little tamer, and the heat is tempered by brisk oceanic winds, making the climate of these regions ideal for vineyard cultivation. The Tamar Valley on Tasmania has been making waves internationally in recent years, as both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varietals are thriving there and resulting in hugely flavorful wines, which are at once distinctly Australian, yet remain unique and interesting enough to surprise and impress. Elsewhere in the country, the Syrah grape (known locally as Shiraz) reigns supreme, as the long, hot summers allow these grapes to ripen fully and lend their intensely fruit-forward character to the ruby red Australian wines, which have such international appeal.
