The story of Mt Pleasant is one of the greatest in Australian wine history. Luckily the wines live up to the tales. One of the finest Semillon vineyards in the Hunter if not the world.
It is hard to argue with the elegance, poise and class of this wine year in and year out. Showing all the classic toast, butter, honeysuckle, spice and developing the silky mouthfeel. This wine is good to drink from now.
Hunter Valley – Although it is historically very important to Australia. If you were planting Australia today from scratch you’d never even visit the Hunter. Rain almost every harvest and excessive heat mean hard work. But the results in the bottle show each year. Shiraz and Semillon are particular highlights.
Semillon – A somewhat shy variety that is most famous for balancing Sauvignon Blancs overt tendencies in table wines and sauternes styles. It found a home in the Hunter where the early picked wines can live for 50 years.
