The Patricia wines are made in honour of the family matriarch Patricia Brown. The range is a culmination of the very best in viticulture and winemaking.
The 2014 Patricia Chardonnay is an elegant style balancing natural acidity with intense fruit flavour.
Tom Wallace, Winemaker: “With the 2014 vintage we made the decision to source fruit from our Tasmanian vineyards. Tasmania has a rich history of producing great Chardonnay; the cool climate gives the grapes a long slow development of aromas and flavours.”
95 points, 2018 Halliday Wine Companion
“This is a sterling wine, at once linear, mineraly tight:thoroughbred. Excellent fruit definition with creamed honey and leesy notes, spine-tinglingly long and pure.”

Recommended food pairings: For the summer months the 2014 Patricia Chardonnay would be perfect with miso marinated snapper fillets on a noodle salad or Portobello mushrooms, char grilled and topped with olive oil, onion and balsamic dressing. During winter try it with pork fillets and a lemon and garlic sauce. It is also the perfect accompaniment to a ripe flavoursome Camembert cheese and slices of pear.
Growing Conditions: The 2014 vintage combines two vineyards from the Tamar Valley in the north of Tasmania. These vineyards experiences cool ripening conditions contributing to a tight style with wonderful fig and citrus notes typical of a cool climate chardonnay.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking notes: The fruit was harvested during April 2014 at baumé levels ranging from 12.5 to 13.5. The fruit was hand picked and whole bunch pressed to minimise phenolic extraction. 100% of the wine completed fermentation in barrel and to add complexity 100% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine spent 11 months in a combination of new (35%), and seasoned French oak barriques with the lees continually stirred to ensure complexity and refinement. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 12.5%, a pH of 3.2 and an acid level of 6.7 g/L.
