Basket Range Wine Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Basket Range is one of the steeper parts of the Adelaide Hills. Traditionally any arable and workable slopes were planted with orchards of apples and cherries in addition to other horticulture. There are still some remnant patches of these orchards throughout the region, as well as native scrub. In 1978 Phillip Broderick purchased a property in Basket Range, in the Adelaide Hills. He planted the initial small vineyard containing a selection of Bordeaux varieties in 1980 and began making wine. In the mid ‘80s Phillip met Mary and their two sons Louis and Sholto were born. Recently, the sons have been crafting their own wines at the property. Their stuff is loose and very vin de soif (These are quintessential picnic wines built for swishing in tumblers in the sun). These wines are organic, fun, and playful and made without any additions. This Cabernet is grown on the warmest part of their vineyard and allowed to gently ripen in the cool Adeliade Hills. This is a supple, mid-weight Cabernet that show wonderful fragrence and delicacy. It's a gorgeous, unique expression of the variety from a very talented, young producer.
