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 Mothervine Pinot Noir 2022
    Very good depth of colour with a distinct purple tint; aromas of dried flowers, dried herbs and spices including hints of dark cherry and fives pice. The wine is intense and full in the mouth, with ample tannins which are fine and powdery, the finish long and balance impeccable. It perhaps lacks the lifted perfumed of cooler climate pinot noirs, but the depth of flavour is very good as is the structure, and it will richly reward those who cellar it a few years. It has more tannin and 'carpentry' than most Aussie pinots.

    Mount Pleasant Mothervine Pinot Noir 2022
    It was ‘Single Vineyard Old Hill’ briefly, for 2021, and now it’s back to Mothervine. 

    GW: Cherry and almond, a bit meaty (think roast lamb or sausages), cedar, spice, a little dusty and earthy. It’s medium-bodied, cherry and darker fruit, ironstone and dried herbs, quite chalky in texture, with a dusty dryness on the finish, which has solid length and a light sappiness. It tastes of Pinot Noir and the Hunter Valley, which at least for me, is a pretty appealing combo. It think it needs a couple more years to settle down. 92 points.

    KS: Sweet cherry scents, Cherry Ripe whiff, cherry pith, cold brew coffee mouthfeel with more… cherries. Clove and orange tension, vibrancy, spice and shapely tannin, bouncy in the mouth, a bit nervy but lifted character, acidity punches with freshly crushed green peppercorns finish. 93 points
