“Best Value Wine” – Western Australian Wine Guide
Erin Larkin, The Wine Companion "Matured for 15 months in French oak. A very reductive nose initially, the black fruits that lie in wait on the palate are sprinkled liberally with cracked black pepper. Bouncy and short, but uncomplicated fresh short-term drinking, here."
The Winemaker "An exotic bouquet showing lovely red berry fruits intermingled with incense, cedary oak and chocolate. Delicious black cherry flavours dominate the palate which is softly structured with fine tannins. "
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Companion "It smells ripe, sweet and berried, the palate then following on faithfully, with rich plum and blackberry flavours pressing gently into raisin territory. There's a musky/vanillin character from oak and a firm finish; it has the throttle well and truly open but it negotiates the road well." (2016 Vintage)
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.
Shiraz is the name given to the dark-skinned Syrah grape when grown in Australia and selected pockets of the New World. Though genetically identical, the stylistic differences between Shiraz and Syrah are usually pronounced.
