Mount Pleasant

New South Wales | Hunter Valley

James' Review

The glorious Elizabeth and Lovedale Semillons are generally commercially available with four to five years of bottle age; they are treasures with a consistently superb show record. Mount Pleasant's individual vineyard wines, together with the Maurice O'Shea memorial wines, add to the lustre of this proud name. The appointment of Jim Chatto as group chief winemaker in 2013, and the '14 vintage - the best since 1965 - has lifted the range and quality of the red wines back to the glory days of Maurice O'Shea, who founded Mount Pleasant and proved himself one of Australia's great winemakers. Winery of the Year in the Wine Companion 2017. Exports to all major markets.

About

In the year of 1921, the legendary Hunter Valley winemaker Maurice O’Shea, one of the founding fathers of the modern Australian wine industry, bought a small parcel of land in the parish of Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley. His pursuit of perfection and his spirit of innovation helped turn the Hunter Valley into a centre of the emerging wine culture. The old saying goes that 'great wines start in the vineyard', and nowhere is that truer than Mount Pleasant. We have the privilege of working with some truly exceptional blocks. From Old Hill, planted in 1880 by Charles King, to the Lovedale vineyard, planted by Maurice O’Shea in 1946, each of our sites create unique and personal wines that are part of the fabric of the Mount Pleasant story.
