Over five generations, members of the Hill-Smith family have
been pioneers in locating exceptional vineyard sites that maximise the
personality of their wines.
Since the wine was released in 1980, Hill-Smith Estate
Sauvignon Blanc has been recognised as one of Australia’s finest Sauvignon
Blancs. Our Chardonnays from the Adelaide Hills and Eden Valley are
contemporary wines crafted from fruit cultivated in premium Chardonnay growing
These wines honour the contribution that Wyndham Hill-Smith
OBE (1909 - 1989) made to wine, sport and life in Australia. A talented amateur
artist, Wyndham painted the front label landscape scenes on all three wines.
Well known as a cricketer, Wyndham Hill-Smith both shared
the crease with Bradman and faced Larwood at his peak. He was a keen
thoroughbred owner, with more than 500 race wins, and well recognised as a
generous host and charming raconteur.
Importantly, Wyndham oversaw in the 1960s and ’70s the
innovative return of viticulture from the floor of the Barossa Valley to the
cooler climes of the high altitude Barossa ranges, known as Eden Valley. In
these conditions, finesse, elegance and understated power replace the robust
and earthy style of the lower altitudes.
