James' Review

Shottesbrooke is a proudly family-owned and managed business with second-generation Hamish Maguire chief winemaker and general manager. Before taking the reins at Shottesbrooke, Hamish completed two vintages in France and one in Spain, giving him a personal knowledge of the world of wine. The investment of time and money over the past 33 years have taken Shottesbrooke to the position where it can embark on the next major step and undertake major improvements in the size and operation of its winery. The central theme is the investment in state-of-the-art equipment, allowing more gentle fermentation, pressing, movement and maturation of the wines. Thus there has been a 25% increase in the temperature-controlled main barrel storage areas, sufficient to hold an additional 600 barrels. Once bottled and packaged, the wines are held in a purpose-built air-conditioned storage facility until shipped to customers in refrigerated containers.

About this winery

Shottesbrooke’s journey began over 30 years ago, when its founder, Nick Holmes, planted his very first vineyard near Myponga in South Australia. It was from these vines, and the quality of fruit they produced, that his passion for crafting wines from in and around McLaren Vale was born.

Today, under the guidance of Nick’s step-son, and now Winemaker and General Manager Hamish Maguire, Shottesbrooke continues to produce a range of high quality wines from both their estate-owned and managed vineyards based in the premium winegrowing regions of McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills, together renowned for producing some of Australia’s best Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The people, the place and the soul have come together over many years to consistently create wines that are true representations of each region’s distinctive style.


Shottesbrooke produces a diverse range of award-winning wines, including:

Sauvignon Blanc - Chardonnay - Pinot Noir - Merlot - GSM - Shiraz - Cabernet Sauvignon

Adelaide Hills Chardonnay - Bush Vine Grenache - Blewitt Springs Shiraz - McLaren Flat Cabernet Sauvignon

'The Proprietor' Cabernet / Merlot / Malbec blend - 'Eliza' Shiraz - 'Punch' Cabernet Sauvignon

Blanc de Blanc Sparkling - Botrytis Sauvignon Blanc - Old Bush Vine Rare Liqueur Tawny - Muscat (1987)
