‘SMALL PRODUCER OF THE YEAR’ ~ The West Australian Wine , Guide 2009

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, fermented in a combination of seasoned and new French oak. Toasty, chewy and packed with layers of flavour and texture. The saline acid ties it all to a post, the concentrated fruit forms a deep pool of flavour on the tongue. There's a lot to ponder, a lot to like, and thankfully, a whole bottle to drink. Get to it."

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Very light-straw colour. The aroma is reserved and a bit shy, with a faint floral overtone, while the palate is light but reasonably intense, straightforward and tickled up with a trace of sweetness. A pleasant wine."

James Halliday Wine Companion "Hand-picked, chilled, whole-bunch pressed, fermented in new and 1yo French barriques. This has good mouthfeel and varietal expression, the oak surprisingly well behaved. It is still youthful, with room to grow and prosper." (2018 vintage)

Steven Creber, Halliday Wine Companion "Opens with plenty of winemaking 'funk' on the bouquet (struck match, cashew, toast), but there's a core of quality grapefruit, melon and peach varietal character as well. Generous in flavour, combining all those elements found in the bouquet, it has an attractive viscosity of mouthfeel with fresh acidity keeping things taut and controlled on the palate. Well made." (2017 vintage)

Nick Buttler, The Real Review "Grapefruits and charry oak - vanilla custard rounds out the bouquet. A lovely, creamy palate - lees work is evident, partial MLF (malolactic fermentation) wouldn't surprise - artifice done well. A generous wine that retains poise, complex enough, the grapefruit acid line leaves a hint of bitterness that demands the next sip." (2017 vintage)

Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday Wine Companion "A wine that glimpses the current zeitgeist of mineral-clad, tauter expressions of chardonnay, while also paying heed to the proclivity of Margaret River for generosity and texture. Honeydew melon and quince leap out of the blocks, while a juicy kernel of cashew, brulee and nougat set the pace for stone fruit notes and a generous lick of medium toasted French oak, toning the palate." (2016 vintage)

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.

Margaret River is one of the best-known wine regions in Australia, recognized internationally for the quality of its wines and the natural beauty of the region. Although originally renowned for its unusually refined Cabernet Sauvignon and intensely citrusy chardonnay varieties, the region now produces Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends and Shiraz.

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.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery Chardonnays are made using oak and are produced in California, Burgundy, and Australia. Unoaked chardonnays such as Chablis and those produced in Chile, New Zealand, and other parts of France are leaner and often crisp and mineraly, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.
