"Don't expect explosive fruit from this wine. It delivers a pungent, spicy mix of cola, roasted meat and black olives instead, cushioned by ample weight in the mouth and a broad, creamy texture. Drink now–2020" - 90pts. Wine Enthusiast

South Australia is Australia’s premier wine growing state, and Langhorne Creek is one of its cooler regions, allowing for better fruit definition. Vintage to vintage, it’s also very consistent. 9 Mile Road traverses this stunning growing region.

The name of these wines is from 9 Mile Road, an old drover’s path for cattle that runs through the Langhorne Creek appellation in South Australia.

TASTING NOTES 

Vineyard: single estate

Tasting Note: Vivid dark red color, with a touch of youthful purple. Aromatics of bing cherries and darker fruits. Luscious and full in the mouth, with a hint of cocoa and spicy licorice, ending with fine, lingering tannins. A real beauty.

Oak treatment: 12 months in seasoned French oak barrels.
