Hillbrook Wines

Hillbrook Wines

After 30 years working in Papua New Guinea and the Northern Territory, Brian Ede with his wife Anne Walsh purchased an old ‘groupie’ block in WA’s Southern Forests region and started their vineyard. Over the years they have gradually built a reputation for quality and value. Smoked out in the 2015 bushfires they have bounced back with their 2016 vintage.

Hillbrook semillon sauvignon blanc 2016 ($18)

The aromatic whites from this small Pemberton producer have consistently been superb. This is so crisp and fruity but with a restraint that still sees loads of flavour packed into its tight frame. A splash of lemon lifts the finish which is clean and pure. Some nice herbals characters bring another dimension.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 2 years

Hillbrook sauvignon blanc 2016 ($18)

This variety has been the big winner for Hillbrook over the years, with a number of show medals. Not hard to see why with this beautiful example of a variety that does so well in Pemberton. Gooseberry and herbal tones with light tropical fruit and citrus tang. Just sings from the glass.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 3 years
