About

About The Wine

The Vineyard Blend from young pumped-up wine grower/winemaker Shalto Broderick is a unique wine.

Petit Verdot and Merlot forms the base of the wine, Bordeaux varieties do particularly well on the Broderick vineyard, a peculiarity for the Adelaide Hills region.

The final 20% of the blend is made up of the more obscure Georgian variety, Saperavi. Saperavi lends colour an weight to the wine and an exotic twist to the perfume. 

Such an interesting and delicious wine here from the young vigneron. One to keep an eye on, no doubt.

About Basket Range Wine

The Broderick family have farmed their little piece of the Adelaide Hills since the 1980's.

Phillip, the Broderick patriarch, has made a more classical style of wine from his fruit for the last few decades and now son Shalto has started making his own juice along side him.

Shalto's stuff is a bit looser in style, more in line with the frisky 'vin-de-soifstyle of wine coming from the Basket Range community. The wines are fun and playful and made without any additions. These are quintessential picnic wines built for swishing in tumblers in the sun.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

It feels like nouveau Bordeaux or something like that. Plums and currant, a leafy lift and some licorice to the perfume. It's a slippery and crunchy little thing to drink. So much personality in the glass and right up there on the gluggability scale. - Different Drop Wine Team
