Product not in wishlist

Low stock - hurry!

An elegant style balancing natural acidity with complexity and ripe stone fruit flavour. This vintage is a combination our two vineyards in Tasmania representing the best possible blend for chardonnay in 2018.


Vineyard Region: Tasmania and Yarra Valley
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12.5%
Colour: 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 incredible length. It is a crisp wine with well balanced acidity, oak, and layers of intrigue.
Peak Drinking: Until 2025

Recommended food pairings: For the summer months the 2018 Patricia Chardonnay would be perfect with Garlic marinated king prawns gently fried and with a lemon mayonnaise dipping sauce. During winter try it with wild mushroom risotto. It is also the perfect accompaniment to a ripe brie cheese and slices of pear.

Growing Conditions: The fruit was harvested during the middle part of March in 2018 at baum√© levels ranging from 12 to 13. The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to minimise phenolic extraction.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: All components completed fermentation in barrel on full solids and with natural yeast to add complexity. The wine underwent full malolactic fermentation to add a further layer of interest and also to reduce the high levels of natural acidity of the 2018 vintage. The wine spent 11 months in a combination of new (26%), and seasoned French oak barriques with the lees continually stirred to ensure complexity and refinement. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 13.0%, a pH of 3.07 and an acid level of 7.08g/L.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “Named in honour of the family matriarch, Patricia never ceases to be anything less than exciting drinking. Since the move by Brown Brothers into Tasmania, it has gained a slightly different, cooler and finer flavour base. That said, the ’18 vintage presents a rich, evocative Chardonnay of preserved lemon, ginger biscuit, white peach, lemon rind, honeyed spice. There is generosity without being heavy. Bad day? Here is the antidote.”
