Growing Conditions: The fruit for the Patricia Pinot Noir & Chardonnay Brut is grown on the high altitude Whitlands plateau.

The fruit was hand picked in March and whole bunch pressed.
Winemaker: Cate Looney
Winemaking notes: The secondary fermentation was deliberately extended to produce a fine bead, then given 6 years on lees to provide further complexity. The wine was then disgorged and liqueured, with an alcohol of 12.5%, a pH of 3.15 and an acid level of 7.1 g/L. This wine was made in strict adherence to the ‘Traditional Method’.
