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.”

Description

Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12.5%
Colour: The wine shows a vibrant straw colour with a slight green hue.
Aroma: The nose is complex with aromas of stone fruits, cashews, citrus and pear.
Palate: The palate is elegant with minerally characters, struck match complexity and stone fruit flavours following through. It is a tight crisp wine with well balanced acidity, oak, and layers of intrigue.
Peak Drinking: Until 2024

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.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “With Brown Brothers’ foray into Tasmania, no surprise the fruit for Patricia comes off the Kayena Vineyard (55%), the rest White Hills. This is a sterling wine at once linear, minerally, tight, a thoroughbred but not devoid of flavour. Excellent fruit definition with creamed honey and leesy notes, spine-tingling long and pure.”
