Patricia Shiraz is crafted around a backbone of the estate's central Victorian Heathcote vineyard, harvested in parcels determined by complete physiological ripeness. A component of the wine was barrel fermented for better oak integration, delivering the recognizeable hallmarks of Patricia, great intensity and fine elegance. Following barrel fermentation, the parcels were treated eighteen months under mostly new oak barriques and puncheons, mainly American and French.
Patricia Shiraz shows intense, dense, round, supple and ripe fruit balanced with integrated oak flavours. Spicey, charry oak moves onto the palate, brilliantly offset by sweet plum and blackberry fruit, good mouthfeel and texture. Patricia is a complex and concentrated, mint and peppery Shiraz. American oak was chosen as it complements the berry and spice flavours of these Shiraz grapes.
