Displaying a concentrated palate of dark berry fruits with spice and pepper aromas. This beautifully bold wine embodies what our winemaking team strive for in making quality Shiraz. 

Tannins are well integrated and approachable, with sumptuous mouthfeel and rewarding fleshy depths, making the ideal partner to lamb, scented with fresh garlic and rosemary.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “A blend of grapes from Bendigo, Henty., King Valley and Heathcote. Big, dense Syrah with dark-fleshed plum, blackberry, cassis, vanilla, anise, spice and nutty oak flavours. A heroic red that’s deliciously drinkable now but will age well. ”

  2. “Deep, bright red/purple colour, youthful and fresh, as is the bouquet which is pepper, spicy and lush, with intensity and drive, the flavour bright and lively, with light but firm-backed tannins providing structure and a long and crisp dry finish, which leaves the mouth refreshed. It’s not heavy, just medium to full-bodied and very accessible. A very smart Shiraz, a wine I’d like to drink.”

  3. “Brown Brothers Patricia range is impressive across the board, and this Shiraz is no exception. It is big, rich and chocolatey, with excellent palate energy, mouth-watering acidity and integrated, papery tannin. There are also some savoury oak tones and a touch of roasted meat, ensuring that the wine is balanced in its flavour spectrum. Despite its richness, the wine is not over-fruity.”

  4. “Deep colour with some evolution and aromas of mint, eucalyptus, chocolate, cherry and plump blackberry fruit.”
