The Wine

Named after Patricia Brown, the Patricia range is a combination of the best that we can do in viticulture and winemaking, and it is very special to the company and the Brown family. The wines must pass our strict selection criteria to be released, which is why we don’t release every vintage. The Patricia wines see the best oak and minimal handling to ensure all the flavour is retained in the bottle. This is a rich and powerful wine with fruit, spice and liquorice characters.

The Grape Variety

A portion of the wine finished fermenting in barrels, then all parcels spent 18 to 20 months in 52% new American and French oak with the balance in older American oak barriques and puncheons before bottling. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 14.5%, pH of 3.5 and an acid level of 6.1g/L.
