Winery Details

    The famed estate of Mount Pleasant has a well-storied past, founded by the visionary of Australian wine, Maurice O’Shea. It includes plantings of ancestral vines of 1880, as well as Australia’s oldest mother vine Pinot Noir planted in 1921 by O’Shea himself. It is the home of some of the first fine wines of Australia, and with just five winemakers over its 100-year history, it has maintained its status as a benchmark of the Hunter classics, Shiraz and Semillon.

Press Review

    Mount Pleasant 1921 Vines Old Paddock Vineyard Shiraz 2022
    Deep red-purple colour; the bouquet suggests dried herbs and stems along with mixed spices including pepper and five spice, a hint of ironstone; the wine enters the palate with dramatic intent and purpose and powers along with great intensity and firm supportive tannins to a long finish. A superb shiraz that begs to be cellared for best results.

    Kasia tasted these wines with Adrian Sparks and myself yesterday, and I’m re-tasting them today, just to see how they are coming along with a little more air.

    GW: Lots of mixed berries, creamy and ripe, some spice, a bit ferrous and savoury. Medium-bodied, quite earthy, red and black fruit, creamy chew to tannin, plenty of berry fruit and a finish of good length. Chalk dust finish. It’s fleshed out and become more succulent and generous after being open for a day, and I can see the makings are very good here. 94+ points.

    KS: Dark and stormy, spicy. Dark fruit and a touch of blue fruit and dried blood, cherry blossom and liquorice top note, some sage. It’s salty with graphite-like finish, long and lasting, feels bold and a bit creamy with oak but I like the rock salt finish and a smoky touch. Characterful. 93+ points
