Growing Conditions: The fruit for the Patricia Pinot Noir & Chardonnay Brut is grown on the high altitude Whitlands plateau. The vineyard is located at 800m above sea level at the top end of
the King Valley. The 2012 vintage is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. The fruit was hand-picked in March and whole bunch pressed in the Kindergarden Winery for vinification.
Winemaker: Cate Looney
Winemaking notes: The grapes were carefully handled in order to minimise the impacts of harsher compounds contacting the grape skins. The secondary fermentation was deliberately extended to produce a fine bead, then followed by six years on lees to provide further complexity. The wine was then disgorged and liqueured in strict adherence to the ‘Traditional Method’, with an alcohol of 12.0%.
