G'day Stilla, me old mate!
Only just seen this - we've been doing stuff but I guess we're back now.
Glad you could get hold of this drop and that you enjoyed it so much. Personally, it's not one I've tried, at least for a year or so.
Yalumba wines come from Soutn Australia and are enormously popular downunder as well as in the States, I believe.
In fact, South Australia has the reputation for making the very best shiraz wines.
Me? I favour wines from the Margaret River region of Western Australia but often take S.A. wines as well as some drops from the Hunter Valley of NSW where McGuigan's have a winery. See this thread: http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/6/107605/1.ashx
If it came to it though where there was not much choice in the liquor store, you could do much worse than a Yalumba.
Just my opinion, of course - I even like Ford cars!!!!!
