95 points "Beautiful colour; the bouquet is a powerful and heady mixture of pure black fruits, spice, licorice and well-handled toasty oak; the palate is dense and powerful, but there is a lightness to the fruit that seamlessly dances across the palate from start to finish; not a wine for everyone, but a wonderful hommage to an iconic Australian blend; terrific value for the quality."

95 points "The first edition of this wine was the 1974, the worst SA vintage ever encountered, marking the first outbreak of downy mildew that caught vignerons completely unprepared; FDR1A was one of few wines to succeed, giving it immortality. This wine comes from one of the best recent vintages, spending 16 months in French oak, with vibrant fruit and immaculate tannins - and a shocking cork." Best 2018-2022
