Our Basket Range vineyard lies between the Piccadilly Valley and Lenswood in the cool climate Adelaide Hills at height of approximately 400m. Dedicated to Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot , Phillip Broderick concentrates on making just one wine each vintage, a French-style blend which expresses the terroir of the vineyard, and of the season. The original vineyard was planted in 1980 and since then it has grown to its current size of four hectares. A small quantity of the grapes grown each year is retained to produce the Basket Range Cabernet Blend, a wine which is characteristic of the region, made by Phillip. Atypically for Australia, we endeavour to release each vintage closer to when it is drinking well, rather than soon after bottling. – Description from AlexJelena

Grapes must be pressed at some point in the process to release the juice or wine. However, even though grapes must eventually be pressed, it is the when, how and how much that are open to interpretation. Wha... Read More
