Patricia Shiraz 2018Brown Brothers
Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)
The fruit was sourced from two premium Victorian vineyard sites in a vintage of ideal climatic conditions.
The carefully selected parcels were chosen to create a full bodied yet elegant Shiraz with lush fruits and pepper spice. Matured in both French and American oak, blended for the perfect balance of richness and complexity giving this wine beautiful length and cellaring potential.
Patricia would have loved it.
This wine would make an ideal partner to crispy skinned duck breast served with kipfler potatoes, broccolini and a black pepper red wine jus. Or why not try it with a spicy Mongolian beef. The Patricia Shiraz is also fantastic with wash rind cheeses.

"A split of 55/45% Central Victoria/Henty fruit; matured in French oak (40% new). Each Patricia vintage is intrinsically, irresistibly individual. So it is that the 2018 release stands in marked difference to 2017, producing a notably savoury, earthy offering, all dark and brooding. Black is the dominant colour – blackberry, cassis, black licorice and dark chocolate with a presiding dark smokiness. Spices play a strong supporting role together with persistent woody tannins. A wine for the future."
A portion of the wine finished fermenting in barrels, then all parcels spent 18 months in 30% new American and 14% new French oak with the balance in older oak barriques and puncheons before bottling. Vegan-friendly.
|Wine Analysis||Alc/Vol: 14%|
The 2018 has a vibrant purple hue and a deep powerful inky core.
The nose is ripe with dark fruits of blackberry and blueberry with a hint of cool climate pepper spice.
The palate is intense and concentrated with great balance.
Peak cellaring until 2028
The fruit was harvested in parcels from early March to early April at baumés between 13 and 14.5.
