James' Review

Established in 1982, Scotchmans Hill has been a consistent producer of well made wines under the stewardship of long-term winemaker Robin Brocket and assistant Marcus Holt. The wines are released under the Scotchmans Hill, Cornelius, Jack and Jill and Swan Bay labels. A change of ownership in 2014 has resulted in significant vineyard investment. Exports to Asia.
