Early indication favouring redistribution of estate (9)
I believe the answer is:
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'.
(Other definitions for foretaste that I've seen before include "Sample of something that lies ahead", "Anticipatory experience", "Sampler", "Sample of something to come", "Sample of what's ahead", "A sample of what could be", "Appetiser", "Advance sample", "Brief experience of what is to come" and "Early experience".)
