Patricia Pinot Noir Chardonnay Brut 2018

Brown Brothers

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

Made using premium handpicked fruit from Victoria's King Valley, extended aging on lees has allowed this traditional method sparkling wine to shine with complex characteristics and a fine bead, culminating in delicate creamy flavours and an incredible clean finish. Cheers to Patricia.

Food Pairings

This refined sparkling wine makes the perfect start to a special meal and is delightful with smoked salmon and natural oysters. Alternatively, try it with baked boneless chicken thighs and a lemon oil drizzle. If the timing is right don't forget about lobster or crab!

The grapes are gently handled to yield 500 litres of juice per tonne (compared with 650-700 per tonne for table wines) to minimise the impact of the colour and harsher compounds from the grape skins. The secondary fermentation was deliberately extended to produce a fine bead, then given 5 years on lees to provide further complexity.

Wine AnalysisAlc/Vol: 12.5%

A clean bright colour with a fine persistent bead.


The nose is lifted with freshly baked bread, green apples and lemon zest.


The palate is creamy and complex with prominent lemon and lime flavours and a bready nuance that lingers. It is fine and elegant with a crisp, dry finish and refreshing acidity.

Growing Conditions

The fruit for the Patricia Pinot Noir & Chardonnay Brut is grown on the high altitude Whitlands plateau. The climate is extremely cool at 800m above sea level in the upper reaches of the King Valley. The 2018 vintage is a blend of 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay. The fruit was hand-picked in mid-March and whole bunch pressed.

“The 2018 vintage was considered a warm year but we source our fruit from the Whitland’s plateau where we are buffered from the hotter conditions and can retain exceptional acidity in our sparkling fruit” 

Cate Looney, Senior Winemaker
