Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)

The fruit for this 2021 vintage was handpicked from our premium vineyards located on Tasmania's East Coast and Tamar Valley, whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented. This wine perfectly displays the elements of cool climate Chardonnay with a zesty citrus finesse, mineral notes, and sensational complexity earned from its time maturing in French oak. Patricia would have loved it.

Tasting Notes

The 2021 Patricia Chardonnay is an elegant wine that balances natural acidity with complexity and ripe stone fruit flavours. Crafted from a blend of two Tasmanian vineyards, it showcases delightful notes of white peach and citrus. With a vibrant straw colour and complex aromas of stone fruits, cashews, citrus, and pear, this wine offers an elegant profile with mineral characters and a long finish. It displays a harmonious balance of acidity, oak, and layers of intrigue.

Food Pairings

For the summer months the 2021 Patricia Chardonnay would be perfect with lightly fried white bait with a lemon mayonnaise dipping sauce. During winter try it with lobster and a lime and coriander butter.

    “Creamy character with crisp apple and floral notes, highly defined taut lemon acidity and substantial, satisfying length.”

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 2021 vintage. The wine spent 11 months in a combination of new (37%), and seasoned French oak barriques with the lees continually stirred to ensure complexity and refinement. Vegan-friendly.
