2019 Basket Range Wine Merlot
All notes from the Lord of the Adelaide Hills, Sholto Broderick:
These are the second release wines from the 2019 vintage. All are made from our organically grown fruit at our family property in Basket Range. Over the past few years we have focused on vine and soil rejuvenation. This, combined with the nature of the 2019 vintage, has meant small quantities this year. It has, however, made wines with great concentration. The Merlot sits in the warmer pocket at the top of a gully. This is the first year we have made a straight Merlot. It will open up nicely with a bit of air.
