Brown Brothers Patricia Shiraz Victorian 2019


From a trio of vineyards around Victoria – 40% from the Pyrenees, 36% from Henty and 24% Bendigo – the wine sees a year and a half in French oak, 30% of which was new. Garnet hue, the nose gives us characters of bay leaves, plums, dry herbs, redcurrants, coffee beans, cloves and leather. The wine lifts further on the palate, with intensity, focus, balance and length. Fine acidity in place, along with firm tannins. Still very youthful, the finish lingers with persistence. Enjoy this over the next ten to fifteen years. A really well made Shiraz.
