BROWN BROTHERS PINOT NOIR/CHARDONNAY BRUT PATRICIA 2011/2012
Brown Brothers family owned winery is known for many things but sparkling wine isn't usually the first to spring to mind, so here's a surprise not only for many wine lovers perceptions but also to their palates.
This blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay is made with grapes grown at 800 metres altitude above sea level in the cool climate of Victoria's King Valley, Australia.
It's aged for six years on lees before disgorgement and offers outstanding quality at an incredibly modest price tag. We love it.
