Philip White takes a look at the wine (and the bottle) of new release Yalumba FDR1A 2000

While the marketing tuggers went nuts with the packaging and mumbo jumbo naming of this Eden Valley Cabernet Shiraz its even got an aluminium medal attached some dill then went and banged a cork in it. Said bark plug fell to bits in the neck, and took 10 minutes to extract. Nice wine, though: smoky, moody and meaty, with the sort of alcohol that I love most: modest. Its a nicely balanced, velvety drink to have with roast beef.

Philip White, The Independent Weekly, January 20-26 2007
