Reviews & Accolades

    Mount Pleasant Lovedale Semillon 2018

    "Light-mid yellow colour; an intense bouquet of lemongrass, with subtle toastiess from bottle-age, while the palate is quite powerful, ample and dry, savoury and appetising yet also has a touch of richness less usual in this style of wine. Intense, tightly focused flavour creates a powerful palate impression and lasts long on the aftertaste. The lemon/lemongrass and savoury developed characters persist long ater the wine has gone."  96 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

    "Considered by many to be the finest expression of straight semillon, be it here or anywhere else. Scents of lanolin, lemon drop, wild fennel and a hint of something soapy and broad, verging on buttered toast. A softer vintage befitting earlier drinking perhaps, but still a magnificent featherweight, destined for a life of 10 to 12 years. Transparent, highly regional and thoroughly convincing. An inimitable wine of terroir." 94 Points, James Suckling - Ned Goodwin

    "Lots of lime and honey nuts, floral. Intense lime and lemon power is turned up in 2018, with a lot of flavour, some toast creeping in, fine powdery/chalky texture, and lemon curd richness with lemon zest and crunchy acidity on a long finish. Plenty of grunt, though of course it’s still a fine Semillon." 95 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

About this Producer

    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.
