The legacy continues
The legacy of Patricia continues year after year, where enigmatic and beautifully expressive wines come to life. First launched in 2003, the Patricia range today is a culmination of the very best in viticulture and winemaking, and with each new release comes a range of wine celebrated not just for its matriarchal heritage, but its dedication to the hardy and time-honoured journey from vineyard to bottle.
PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
Made in our experimental Kindergarten Winery, the wines in our flagship Patricia range are beautifully expressive, complex, and the result of meticulous craft. Like all good things, winemaking too requires patience, and it is through this pursuit of excellence that we continue to produce a collection of wines of a truly outstanding calibre.
And if it doesn’t meet the standards of Patricia, it simply won’t bear her name.
THE WOMAN BEHIND THE LABEL
Our matriarch and driving force behind the growth, prosperity, and culture at Brown Brothers, Patricia was an inspiration to all who knew her.
“Nanna was also the unofficial CEO. Hands down. She was the tea lady, the mail lady, and she welcomed everyone who visited the winery with open arms. She was the people and culture manager before roles like this even existed!”
To celebrate her bold and generous spirit, we released our flagship Patricia range in 2003. And just like our memory of her, these wines are distinctly unique and full of life – built upon the core family values that have been passed down through generations.
For 20 years we've paid homage to Patricia with the annual release of her namesake wines, and in 2023 the celebrations continue with the first taste of an exclusive limited release wine, available to purchase online only or from our Milawa cellar door.
Handcrafted using premium Pinot Noir & Chardonnay grapes from the King Valley, 12 years on lees has led to this moment: a rare and exquisite sparkling wine that shines with bright citrus notes, a toasty palate, and nutty complexity.
EXCLUSIVE FIRST RELEASE | PREMIUM GIFT BOX INCLUDED
"Captivated by the vibrant acidity and freshness of the 2010 vintage, we knew we could make something special one day... and the time has come to reap our rewards."
- Cate Looney, Senior Winemaker
"The slower ripening season of 2017 gave us a high level of natural acidity... resulting in premium fruit that makes world-class sparkling such as this.”
- Brett McClen, Head Viticulturist
“Patricia Chardonnay is the greatest representation of cool-climate wines from our Tasmanian vineyards… producing a quality of Chardonnay to rival any in the world.”
- Tom Wallace, Senior Winemaker
“A wine of class, it arrives fully formed and in balance. Plum, cassis, leafy bracken and earth, baking spices, and dark chocolate aromas rise from the glass.”
- 96 points, Jeni Port
“The palate lingers initially with that glorious sweetness but then with a drying acidity that completes a lip-smacking feel. Half a bottle is simply not enough!”
- 97 points, Ray Jordan
"...This Shiraz is elegant in style, boasting spice and white pepper notes. With exceptional cool-climate acidity, those who have the patience to cellar this wine will be rewarded.”
- Geoff Alexander, Winemaker
"It was our task to ask our mum if we could put her name on the bottle. She agreed with one condition; they better be bloody good!" - Ross Brown, 3rd Generation
And good they are. From our family to yours, we look forward to taking you on a journey through our latest vintage and 20th release of Patricia.SHOP PATRICIA RANGE
