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 three 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.

Winestate – The Best Wines of 2016
4.5 / 5 Stars – “Smoky aged fruit bouquet with some minty brightness. A full and complex palate still showing some primary fruit and firm tannins. Travelling well.”

Description

Vineyard Region: Victoria
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 13.5%
Colour: The Patricia Cabernet Sauvignon is an intense black purple colour.
Aroma: This wine has aromas of blackcurrant and dried herbs, while the French oak influence offers a gentle ‘cigar box lift’ to the nose.
Palate: On the palate the wine is powerful and intense with rich fruit and hints of nutmeg.
Peak Drinking: Until 2024

Recommended food pairings: This concentrated red wine would make a great partner to slow cooked lamb shoulder with Mediterranean vegetables and a rich juniper berry infused sauce. It could also be enjoyed with a selection of ages parmesan and pecorino cheese at the end of a meal.

Growing Conditions: Fruit for the 2010 Patricia Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from three outstanding vineyards in Victoria. The Ray vineyard in the King Valley provided 60%, the Moonlight vineyard in the Bendigo region providing 34% and our own Heathcote vineyard 6%. The fruit was harvested in late March to early April 2010 at baume levels ranging from 13.5 to 14.1.

Winemaker: Cate Looney

Winemaking notes: The wine was destemmed and crushed to fermenters. Selected small batches of the wine were cared for in the Kindergarten Winery. The wine spent 17 months in 62% new, 11% 1 year old and the balance older French oak barriques. A number of blending trials took place to produce a very intense and powerful wine from a low yielding vines. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 13.5%, a pH of 3.55 and an acid level of 6.5g/L.
