Basket Range Wine was brought into being by Phillip Broderick in 1980 at Basket Range, situated between Lenswood and the Piccadilly Valley in the cool climate Adelaide Hills.  Our first vineyard soon gave way to our current position a little higher up the hill and of many more hectares.  

A sunny aspect and steep slopes produce consistently high quality grapes - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir and Saperavi.  Each year a small proportion is retained to produce the Basket Range Cabernet Blend, as well as a Pinot when Phillip is moved to do so.  We look forward to the Saperavi becoming productive so it can join the range.

Each vintage Vino Cotto is made, using the traditional method, and always popular.

Tony Love, The Advertiser

Basket Range Winemakers, March 2017......Before and all the way through this new-generation chanting, the Broderick family, starting with Phillip and Mary and now including their two sons Louis and Sholto, have quietly gone about their business since the 1980s of growing grapes and making wine out of their sheds at Basket Range. They are the original Basket Rangers......read on

From the brilliant family Broderick in Basket Range, Adelaide Hills. True vignerons of the distinctly interesting parish of the Adelaide Hills.

Basket Range Wine Sholto Broderick Pinot Noir 2016

This wine is an ambitious start from the generation two of the Broderick family who grow grapes and make wine from the recently notorious Basket Range hamlet of the Adelaide Hills. Shotlo works alongside his old man, and picked this a touch earlier ‘for juicy fruit and bright acidity’....read on

Basket Range Wine Sholto Broderick Vineyard Blend 2016

Petit verdot, saperavi and merlot. The winemaking is by Sholto Broderick, but Mylene Bru the fantastic French natural winemaker was there helping and lending sage advice.

Basket Range Wine Merlot 2016

A while before Basket Range became synonymous with a counter culture wine movement of great noise, a shift in thinking, some wild wines (some great wines!) and a heady dose of carnivale, there was Basket Range Wine from Phillip and Mary Broderick. Someone asked me the other day ‘what are your best merlots from Australia?’, to which I said, a couple of things, but amongst it, Basket Range Wine’s.....read on

Basket Range Wine Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2016

Increasingly finding myself drawn to this producer, fantastic value, interesting wines, freshness and purity on their side but with a good anchor into a ‘typicity’ of the variety and/or blends. Young ‘Claret’-esque feel here. Drinkability is on its side, though it should cellar well too....read on

 

2006 Cabernet/Merlot/Petit Verdot

94 points

Boutique producers Phil and Mary Broderick have stuck to this estate Bordeaux-like blend whatever the vintage reveals, and here it is at its best - superb ripeness, an assured balance between fine tannins and cabernet fruit richness, and a little leaf, earth and subtle woody momentum. Only small quantities left.

Such a gloriously honest, open-faced beauty is everything people seem to yearn for in the cabernet-centric blend, with its varieties selected with deep understanding and gastronomic intelligence. Its bouquet is minty and floral, acrid blue like a smoking gun, carbon-black, with polished walnut oak and sexy, bright-dark fruits, musk and confectioner’s sugar, perfectly entwined in the palate with supportive natural acidity; it’s all here in sassy, confident abundance. A lovely, bright, Bordeaux-style wine which will live a breezy decade, this is the best Hills cabernet blend I’ve seen so far. Congratulations to winemaker/growers Philip and Mary Broderick!

Wait for re-release late 2010
