‘SMALL PRODUCER OF THE YEAR’ ~ The West Australian Wine, Guide 2009
Ray Jordan 'Probably the best chardonnay from this small producer. Aromas of lime and light stone fruit with a trace of crunchy melon. It's a medium-bodied wine with the oak deliberately underplayed, though still taking an important role. A nice edge to the finish'.
Ned Goodwin 'A wine that glimpses the current zeitgeist, tauter expressions of chardonnay while also paying heed to the proclivity of Margaret River for generosity and texture. Honeydew melon and quice leap out of the blocks... a generous lick of medium French oak, toning the palate'.
The Western Australian Wine Guide 2018 "Brown Hill Estate is small family-run southern Margaret River producer has gone from strength to strength with a range of exceptional quality and value-for-money wines. The vines are all dry grown and on quite harsh gravelly soils, resulting in small yields. All grapes are hand-picked. The reds are put into a high percentage of new American and French oak. Great value and super wines."
Brown Hill Estate is a family run, multi-award winning Margaret River winery focussed on single vineyards. It utilizes traditional methods of handpicking and hand sorting to get the best quality from its grapes, and French coopered barrels in production.
Located in the south-western corner of Western Australia, it is famous for having a more 'European' wine style than its counterparts across Australia, owing to the regions temperate, coastal location which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.
