For the first time since the initial launch in 2003, Brown Brothers will release all five of its Patricia wines in 2016.
Named in honour of the Brown family's late matriarch, Patricia Brown, the range is a culmination of the very best in viticulture and winemaking. The range is released each year on Patricia's birthday, 17 March.
Such is the commitment to the Patricia range, that if a wine does not meet stringent quality measures, it will not bear the Patricia name. Since the first release 13 years ago, 38 out of a possible 70 have been released into market.
This year's release comprises of the 2010 Patricia Pinot Noir Chardonnay Brut, the 2011 Patricia Chardonnay, the 2012 Patricia Shiraz, the 2010 Patricia Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2013 Patricia Noble Riesling.
