|Palate:||The palate is elegant with minerally characters, struck match complexity and incredible length. It is a crisp wine with well balanced acidity, oak, and layers of intrigue.|

Recommended food pairings: For the summer months the 2018 Patricia Chardonnay would be perfect with Garlic marinated king prawns gently fried and with a lemon mayonnaise dipping sauce. During winter try it with wild mushroom risotto. It is also the perfect accompaniment to a ripe brie cheese and slices of pear.
Growing Conditions: The fruit was harvested during the middle part of March in 2018 at baumé levels ranging from 12 to 13. The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to minimise phenolic extraction.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking notes: All components completed fermentation in barrel on full solids and with natural yeast to add complexity. The wine underwent full malolactic fermentation to add a further layer of interest and also to reduce the high levels of natural acidity of the 2018 vintage. The wine spent 11 months in a combination of new (26%), and seasoned French oak barriques with the lees continually stirred to ensure complexity and refinement. The wine was bottled with an alcohol of 13.0%, a pH of 3.07 and an acid level of 7.08g/L.
