James' Review

McWilliam's Elizabeth and the glorious Lovedale Semillon were generally commercially available with four to five years of bottle age; they were treasures with a consistently superb show record. The individual vineyard wines, together with the Maurice O'Shea memorial wines, add to the lustre of this proud name. However, 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 in the 1930s and '40s. Henceforth it will be known as Mount Pleasant, severing the (name) connection with McWilliam's. Winery of the Year in the 2017 Wine Companion. Exports to all major markets.

About this winery

Nestled in the heart of Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley, the iconic Mount Pleasant Estate is the perfect location to sample some of the best wines and food in the region beneath the stunning backdrop of the Brokenback Range.

In recognition of outstanding customer service, Mount Pleasant was recently named the Hunter Valley’s ‘Best Large Cellar Door’ in the 2014 Gourmet Traveller Wines’ “Australia’s Best Cellar Door Awards” as well as receiving a 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
