Hillcrest Estate Has Released 3 New White Wines In Time For Summer Enjoyment. Each Is Unique In Flavour And Grape Varietals.
The Relief 2012
This is a unique blend of 4 blocks of Sauvignon Blanc that differ in elevation, soil type, aspect & yield. It is a true "terroir wine" as only grapes from Hillcrest Estate are used in the blend. The wine is full bodied with a soft touch on the mouth, showing a range of passion and tropical fruit flavours. The Relief 2012 is a well balanced wine that can be enjoyed now but also has good ageing potential. R120 per bottle

Maiden Vintage 2012
A special limited edition wine as wine maker, Graeme Read celebrates 10 years of making wine at Hillcrest. Light in colour with a subtle fruity nose, this is a Maiden Vintage blend of Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon which shows a distinctive minerality of the area with grapefruit and lime flavours. An excellent wine that you’ll finish before you know it. R90 per bottle

Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Always a popular wine at Hillcrest, this year’s vintage is light in colour with an expressive nose. There are hints of lime and passion fruit flavours. This is a wine to drink chilled and to make the most of over the summer months. R60 per bottle
