Brown Brothers Patricia Noble Riesling

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Full gold; there is the same difference between this and the Tamar Ridge Botrytis Riesling '11 as there is between a Sauterne and a Mosel Valley trockenbeerenauslese-so comparison is very difficult. This wine has become the number one trophy winner in mainland wine shows over recent years; abundant honey, toast, butter and citrus flavours.

Brown Brothers Milawa vineyard has been producing botrytis wines for fifty years and it remains one of the best in the country, balancing unctuous, exotic richness with refreshingly tight acidity.

Glowing gold; has the wonderful intensity and length of high-quality botrytised riesling, and Brown Brothers have more expertise in making this wine than any other Australian producer. The flavours are of honey, cumquat, marmalade, tangerine, plus whatever else you like. Now on the plateau of perfection. 375ml.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Supremely long and stylish, this developing, complex and laid-back dessert wine conceals its concentration and intensity with its fine chalky texture and bright, lemony acids. Its toasty bouquet of citrus and creme caramel is lifted by a waxy floral scent. Sumptuous and piercingly intense, with penetrative and slightly caramelised flavours of melon, apricot and lime extending long down the palate, it finishes with a hint of mineral.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
A luscious, concentrated riesling with a rather candied fragrance of honey, barley sugar, citrus and tropical fruits, it's long, intense, very sweet and underpinned by a dusty spine of chalky phenolics. Shapely and vinous, it finishes with pleasing tightness, focus and a fresh, citrusy acidity.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Bright gold; has an intensity of flavour that explains why it has such an armada of gold medals and trophies; the lower alcohol than traditional Australian styles (though not German) and citrussy acidity are the keys to a wonderful wine.

Matt Skinner (2006 Vintage) says
Brown Brothers are well drilled in the art of over-delivery Ð this latest sweet offering from the flagship Patricia range being another perfect example. A liquid homage to the much-loved and former Brown matriarch, Patricia Brown, it has a pure and concentrated nose of sweet citrus marmalade, candied pineapple and spice, and a mouthfeel that is rich, slippery and intense, yet not at all heavy or cloying. Drink it with cream and ricotta tart with raisins, rum and apples.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Glowing gold; intensely aromatic and flavoured; lime juice, orange peel and cumquat; integrated and balanced oak; very good acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
A luscious, intensely flavoured and pristine dessert wine that avoids the cloying nature of so many of its kind. Its honeyed aromas of tinned tropical fruits, pear and apricot reveal complex undertones of pastry. Slightly buttery, very ripe and concentrated, the palate delivers an elegant, smooth and juicy expression of stonefruits, honeycomb and tropical flavours before finishing fresh and clean with zesty lemony acidity.

Golden yellow; an immensely complex yet vibrant mix of cumquat, apricot and crystallised citrus. Perfect acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2000 Vintage) says
Complex, developing dessert style with pleasing fruit and freshness, but without the excessively cloying sweetness of many others. Its toasty aromas of brioche and honey, dried fruit and nuts herald a moderately luscious palate. In addition to its penetrative apple, pear and apricot-like fruit, its nuances of honey, butter and pastry culminate in a lingering lemon meringue finish punctuated by fresh citrusy acids.

Immensely complex cumquat, mandarin and box honey; perfect balancing acidity; great length.
