Company Overview: Hillcrest Estate is a boutique winery that vinifies between 40-50 tons of grapes per year. That means our vineyards produce approximately 33 000 bottles of wine, evenly split between white and red wines, making Hillcrest wines unique and highly sort after. Our vineyards and terroir impact our wines, and so they are carefully looked after throughout the year. Geologically Hillcrest is quite unique, in that our vineyards are strewn with Malmesbury shale, a sedimentary rock formed by magma millions of years ago. Our vineyards are 110 to 390 meters above sea level and are planted with the varietals that are best suited to the aspect and differing temperatures. Our Sauvignon Blanc is planted on the higher slopes as it enjoys cooler temperatures, whilst the reds are planted lower down, where they benefit from a slightly warmer position. Hillcrest Estate is situated in close proximity to the Atlantic ocean, which cools our vineyards and allows for a slow ripening period. This, in turn, means our grapes reach full phenolic ripeness whilst maintaining a good acid structure. Resulting in well-balanced wines with pronounced fruit that can be aged for a good period of time.
