About the Winemaker:
Phillip Broderick has been growing grapes at Basket Range, in the Adelaide Hills, since 1980. A small vineyard was planted focusing on mainly Bordeaux varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot. In 2000 as a family we moved up the hill next door and planted a larger vineyard of ten acres, comprising Bordeaux varieties and Pinot Noir, later including Saperavi and Chardonnay.
