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 Patricia Cabernet Sauvignon has already received two and a half years bottle age to soften and integrate its characters and will continue to improve over the next 6-8 years in the cellar. The wine has good length and is well structured with ripe flavours and a seamless elegant finish.

Aroma: This wine has aromas of blackcurrant and dried herbs, while the French oak influence offers a gentle ‘cigar box lift’ to the nose.
