Mount Pleasant Cellar Aged Elizabeth Semillon 6pk 2017
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.
Mount Pleasant Cellar Aged Elizabeth Semillon 2017
An aged release. All the grapes are estate grown, far distant from Elizabeth's heyday. Ah, what a drop-dead beauty, with the poise of a ballerina, feet barely touching the ground, and marking the end of act one. The first stage of honey and toast just commenced, with four to five stages still to follow.
