About The Wine

Sholto Broderick's Cabernet wines are some of his best.

In this slightly warmer part of the Adelaide Hills, the conditions conspire perfectly for Cabernet. Considered growing and a gentle hands-off apporach in the cellar gets the very best out of the Broderick vineyard fruit.

This is a supple, mid-weight Cabernet that show wonderful fragrence and delicacy. It's a gorgeous, unique expression of the variety from a young producer truly coming into his own as a winemaker.

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 Sholto has started making his own juice along side him.

Sholto'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 little to no additions. These are quintessential picnic wines built for swishing in tumblers in the sun.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Cabernet grows in the warmest aspect of the vineyard. That site gets a nice amount of afternoon sun. It is the first time we have also made a straight Cabernet Sauvignon and I think it shows how well-suited that variety can be for this part of the Hills, particularly in warmer years.

The Wine Front

"Succulent and taut, rippling with dark berry and plummy fruit character, shot through with stemsy, fennel-like herbal notes, an authority of tannin that is rarely seen in cabernet from this fine land, firm, cinching, fine, excellent. And the whole thing so fresh feeling, so alive and energetic, the shape beautiful and the fruitiness so well tempered by other elements. World class." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
