The Adelaide-based company yesterday posted its ninth consecutive record annual profit in one of the toughest ever years for wine producers, after successfully completing a $250 million thrust into the crucial US market.

Unveiling a full year profit of $72.2 million, a 21 per cent gain over the previous year after a similar rise in sales to $771 million, managing director Stephen Millar said the group's rapid growth - its market worth has rocketed from just $90 million on listing in 1992 to almost $2 billion - would continue, making the future a "whole new ball game
