    Mount Pleasant Mount Henry Shiraz Pinot Noir 2022

    "Magnificent fruit is central to this historic blend, where shiraz provides the base and pinot the tannin, energy and detail. The fragrant, nutty oak is prominent right now, though with time, this will melt into the wine to form a treasured savoury accent. And honestly, once one pairs the wine with something savoury, the dynamics change and the oak slips into the background while the fragrant dark fruit prevails. The peacock's tail on the finish is utterly compelling and coaxes one into having another sip. Mighty fine fruit for a wine of this price. One for now and beyond." 95 Points, Special Buy, Toni Paterson, Halliday Wine Companion

    "Medium-full purple-red colour with very appealing red cherry aromas, laced with spices including star anise and clove. The wine is tightly compact on the mid-palate where it is quite deep and penetrating, with elegance and charm, the tannins mild but gently persuasive. The drinkability is excellent although it's likely the wine will age well and develop interesting tertiary complexities with time. Elegant, fine and long, a very tidy red. 2023–2034"  92 Points, The Real Review

    "It’s 82% Shiraz (65 Rosehill) with the remainder being Mothervine Pinot Noir. 
    GW: Deep, dark fruit, earthy and spicy, iron filings, boysenberry, slight green stalk and peppermint. Juicy red and black fruit, a bit of chew and slightly rugged tannin, hazelnuts, a somewhat chalky and nutty finish. It’s not quite together as yet, but interesting and full of character. 91+ points.

    KS: Smells dark, black-fruited at first, toasty and nutty, oak sits atop with coffee aromas, and it just feels a bit angular. This release seems more Shiraz-y to me than the last year’s one that, even though had a similar blend proportion, looked more Pinot-esque. There are black olive tones with oily herb rub, dark chocolate tannin. Good weight, intensity, length. It seems, it doesn’t feel comfortable in its skin yet. Loving the fleshy, chewy black olive, however. 93+ points"
    93+ Points, Gary Walsh and Kasia Sobiesiak, 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.
