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.”
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.
