Patricia Chardonnay 2017
$48.0012 Awards/Critics’ Notes
The Patricia range is an expression of Brown Brothers’ commitment to winemaking excellence. These wines are nurtured from the vineyard to the bottle, with the best parcels of fruit from the best sites carefully selected. Made in the Kindergarten Winery, the final wines are the result of fastidious blending to achieve perfect balance, depth, complexity and varietal character.
The 2017 Patricia Chardonnay is an elegant style balancing natural acidity with intense fruit flavour. The 2017 vintage combines two vineyards from Tasmania and the Yarra Valley.
It is a complex, reserved yet crisp wine with considered cool climate acidity, oak and incredible length.

Recommended food pairings: For the warmer months the 2017 Patricia Chardonnay would be perfect with BBQ calamari with fresh seasonal herbs. During the cooler months, try it with a porcini mushroom risotto with fresh truffle shavings. It is also the perfect accompaniment to a ripe brie cheese and slices of fig.
Growing Conditions: The fruit was harvested during March and April of 2017 at baumé levels ranging from 12.0 to 13.0. The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to minimise phenolic extraction.

Winemaking notes: All components completed fermentation in barrel and to add complexity 100% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine spent 9 months in a combination of new (29%), 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%.
