Cheers to our 2024 Halliday Wines

Fri 4 Aug 2023

Alongside some of Australia's best producers, we're pleased to share that Brown Brothers has once again been named a 5-star winery, with 8 of our wines achieving a rating of 90 points and above in the 2024 Halliday Wine Companion

Among our top performers are the heroes of our Patricia range, scoring 95 points and above. A huge congratulations to our winemakers, viticulture teams, and all those who helped bring our wines to life. Tasted and reviewed by Jeni Port.

BB Patricia Extended Lees 97 points, Halliday

Patricia Extended Lees Pinot Noir & Chardonnay 2010, 97 points

"The makers were excited by the quality of the 2010 vintage, especially the great acid line and length, and therefore kept a small amount on lees under crown seal for 12 years. Boasts a lovely poise and subtle complex aromas in baked apple, peach, nougat, fig, fruit mince pies, roasted almonds and spice. Filigree fine acidity seamlessly knits everything together across a warm, inviting palate with just a touch of preserved lemon savouriness to close. Lasts long. A special sparkling."

BB Patricia Chardonnay 95 points, Halliday

Patricia Chardonnay 2021, 95 points

"Wild yeast fermentation in French oak (37% new). Patricia Chardonnay is now firmly ensconced in its new home in Tasmania, 2021 imparting a coiled but focused presence in the glass. Combines filigree-fine acidity with equally fine, subtle fruit intensity, a lick of spice and oak-defined almond mealiness. Winemaking is exemplary, allowing the region to star and the fruit to shine."

BB Shiraz 94 points, Halliday

Patricia Shiraz 2018, 94 points

"A split of 55/45% Central Victoria/Henty fruit; matured in French oak (40% new). Each Patricia vintage is intrinsically, irresistibly individual. So it is that the 2018 release stands in marked difference to 2017, producing a notably savoury, earthy offering, all dark and brooding. Black is the dominant colour – blackberry, cassis, black licorice and dark chocolate with a presiding dark smokiness. Spices play a strong supporting role together with woody tannins. A wine for the future."

Honourable mentions include the following wines imparting elegance, flavour, and finesse. Each wine has achieved a score of 90 points or above. 

Prosecco Premium Brut NV, 93 points

"Single vineyard, Charmat method. Looks premium in serious black and silver packaging. Tastes premium, too, with a persistent, superfine mousse and equally fine flavour profile in lifted white flowers, red apple, white peach, citrus and nougat [...] Its zesty, tangy acidity is pure Prosecco."

Winemaker's Series Shiraz 2020, 93 points

"Matured 12 months in French and American oak (10% new). A sweet-hearted, plummy young red full of flavour and at a terrific price. Brings cherries and plums to the fore and stirs in some baking spices and aniseed. Slips easily across the tongue with a lip-smacking finish. Drink young."

Limited Release Montepulciano 2022, 91 points

"The Italian grape variety, which hails originally from Abruzzo, arrives dressed for success in the most eye-catching, iridescent purple hues and arresting cherry and herbal bright perfume. Keeps a rich vein of violet, oregano, anise spiciness, morello cherry and red currant leafiness going across a tangy, bright palate buoyed by background acidity. Gets the tastebuds rocking!"
