In Detail

We are a boutique wine producer, only making between 400 and 700 cases annually for our own label. We don't always make every variety every year. If we sell out of a particular variety, we will indicate that on our Order Form.

Most of Scotts Brook's 100 tonnes of grapes are sold under contract. From 2001, this contract was with Evans & Tate, but since 2008 with McWilliams, following their purchase of the Evans & Tate wine stocks and label.

With such a small quantity for our own label, we have our wine made under contract by a professional winemaker. Since 2004, this service has been provided by Vasse River Wines. Talented winemaker, Sharna Kowalczuk, is happy for us to also employ a consultant. For 2005 and 2006, this was John Durham and since 2007, our consultant has been Richard Rowe. As the ex-chief winemaker of Evans & Tate, Richard is undoubtedly one of the most experienced and talented winemakers in the country. We are very happy to have him as part of our team—he offers that next elusive dimension.

Plantings have been expanded to 17 hectares and seven varieties yielding 130 tonnes in 2000. Most is sold to Aquila Estate at Carabooda with varying amounts (10-15 tonnes) left for the Scotts Brook label, depending on market demand. Generally four wines make up the range - Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, autumn harvest white mainly from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, and the occasional Riesling. From 2001 a Shiraz will be added.
