‘SMALL PRODUCER OF THE YEAR’ ~ The West Australian Wine Guide 2009
Campbell Mattinson 'Dense cabernet boasting pools of chocolate blackcurrant flavour. It's all about bass and not much treble, but when you've got fruit of this much weight you may as well flaunt it'.
Ray Jordan 'A velvety smooth and generous cabernet displaying layer upon layer of deeply concentrated fruit. Blackcurrant and dark chocolate with a cedary lift. The tannin and oak combo works a treat on the palate, holding the fruit gently so it extends effortlessly to the long finish. Will continue to evolve with cellaring.'
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 superb wines."
