95/100 - "A newie from Yalumba to partner the rebirth of the old FDR1A label (it stands for Fine Dry Red). This superb Adelaide Hills chardonnay is beautifully refined and well made; a clean, fresh style with carefully controlled oak. Hints of butter, nuts and toast combine with nectarine and cashew nut. The palate is rich and layered yet refined and subtle, with an irresistible creamy texture, good weight and persistence but also impeccable balance. Magic stuff at a very agreeable price. Drink now to four of five years."
Food: roast stuffed chicken; grilled lobster medallions; prawn and saffron risotto; very ripe creamy brie or camembert.
