Brown Brothers releases latest tribute to family matriarch

The flagship Patricia range from Brown Brothers pays tribute to the late family matriarch who died in 2004 - and the 16th release hit the market on Sunday, March 17.

There are four new wines in the release, the Patricia Pinot Noir Chardonnay Brut ($48), the Patricia 2017 Chardonnay ($45), the Patricia 2015 Shiraz ($62) and Patricia 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon ($62). 

The Patricia 2014 Noble Riesling ($37) was released last year and completes the quintet. 

The chardonnay reflects the family-owned company's gradual migration from its Victorian roots to cooler Tasmania, with a blend of fruit from the Tamar Valley and East Coast of the Apple Isle alongside Yarra Valley fruit. 

I though the chardonnay had lovely balance and the length to cellar well in the mid-term, while the cabernet sauvignon is already accessible and has impressive depth. 

"Patricia's commitment to her family and the business was nothing but inspirational and the Patricia range is an expression of our commitment to winemaking excellence," says her grand-daughter Caroline Brown. 

"The Patricia range is the result of the very best work carried out by our viticulture and winemaking team with the best parcels from the best sites carefully selected."

Why March 17? It was the family matriarch's birthday.
