About the wine

This is a lighter, hot-climate, classic Bordeaux Blend from Louis + Sholto Broderick of Basket Range Winery whose estate covers just over 5 hectares in Basket Range, Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

Tasting Notes: Medium-bodied, the wine opens with a touch of reduction on the nose that, with time, softens into a flinty aspect. Blackcurrants, plum, and thorny bramble lead into a palate with singing acid. The finish is relatively short with a savory, shiitake mushroom farewell.

Vinification: A blend of 50% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot hand-harvested, before being spontaneously fermented in open-top tanks with only ambient yeasts in whole-bunches, destemmed, and destemmed, respectively. Blended before bottling, the wine is unfined, unfiltered with no additional SO2. 13.8%ABV

The Producer: Basket Range Winery

Phillip Broderick has been growing grapes at Basket Range, in the Adelaide Hills, since 1980. A small vineyard was planted focusing on mainly Bordeaux varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot.  In 2000 as a family we moved up the hill next door and planted a larger vineyard of ten acres, comprising Bordeaux varieties and Pinot Noir, later including Saperavi and Chardonnay.

Their sons, Louis and Sholto are making wine, increasing the range and have taken on much of the viticulture, introducing or building upon new and existing methods of farming, organically.
