foretaste

Here is my best explanation:

'early indication' is the definition.

'favouring redistribution of estate' is the wordplay.
'favouring' becomes 'for' (I've seen this before).
'redistribution of' indicates anagramming the letters (the letters are distributed to different places).
'estate' anagrammed gives 'etaste'.
'for'+'etaste'='FORETASTE'
