Description

The Hillbille property has been in the Bettridge family since the late 1980s and has a total area of 59 hectares. After many years supplying local wineries, Hillbille began making wines under its own label in 2003.

The Wines

The wines of Hillbille are all clean and austere, very much directed towards the European palate, and are all estate-grown. The Hillbille 'Estate' range is contemporary in style, providing excellent structure and balance to a range of classic grape varietals. Within this range are the Hillbille Chardonnay, Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Merlot and Shiraz varieties.

The 'James Brittain' signature range is dedicated to the family's great-great-grandfather James Brittain, whose 'signature' is evident across the City of Perth on such heritage buildings including the Town Hall, Barracks Arch and Cloisters. This series of wines are from only premium fruit, and produced in very limited quantities. Varieties within the range include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz Viognier.

The wines are available to purchase on the Hillbille website and are also exported to Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Cellar Door

The cellar door at Hillbille is open from 10am-4pm on weekends and public holidays.

  • Wine Region:Blackwood River Valley
  • Wine Variety:Cabernet Merlot,Cabernet Sauvignon,Chardonnay,Malbec,Merlot,Shiraz,Tempranillo

Details

  • Brands:Rolling Hills and Firetower ranges
  • Established:1998
  • Size & Year:Established 1951 - 2000

Description

Late in the 19th century, roaming cattle were often found grazing on the grass of the granite hills which are now home to Nannup Estate. Farmers recognised the quality of the land and the location was one of the first to be taken up for agriculture in the region. Mark and Alison Blizard purchased the land in 1998, and recognised it had the perfect attributes to grow quality wine grapes.

During the growing season, the Nannup Ridge vines enjoy long hours of sunshine followed by cool evenings and moderate coastal breezes in the afternoon, resulting in idyllic growing conditions. Abundant water, granite loam soils and low frost and disease pressure all contribute to reliable quality and consistent vintages.

The Wines

Nannup Estate makes two wine ranges; Rolling Hills and Firetower.

The Rolling Hills range utilises the reliable temperature, climate and ancient granite soils of the region to produce high-quality fruit with distinct varietal characters, and includes a Merlot, Tempranillo, Malbec, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

The Firetower range takes its name from a Jarrah Firetower overlooking Nannup Estate that was built in the 1960s. The expansive view over the renowned Nannup Hills, the coastal plain and Blackwood River Valley made the tower ideal for spotting emerging bushfires. Within this range is a Cabernet Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz Malbec Tempranillo and Tempranillo Rose.
