Shottesbrooke

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

Shottesbrooke is a proudly family-owned and managed business with second-generation Hamish Maguire as 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 to ensure quality and consistency throughout the entire process. Exports to all major markets, most importantly, China.

About

From the ground up, Shottesbrooke has been built on a tradition of hard work, dedication and passion. The people, the place and the soul that have come together over many years, and which today see our wines being distributed around the world, continue on through everything we do at Shottesbrooke. You'll find it in every bottle.
