Winemaker's Notes:

These grapes come from a single vineyard in Wrattonbully, located on the southern edge of the Limestone Coast just west of Coonawarra.

This wine displays juicy, ripe, soft tannins with notes of menthol and eucalyptus. Flavors are of mulberries and other dark fruits, plus all the "extra vinous" sought after complexities, such as tobacco leaf.

My Notes:

About 9 Mile Road:

The name of this wine is taken from 9 Mile Road, an old drover's path that now runs through the Langhorne Creek appellation in South Australia.
