Reviews & Accolades

    Mount Pleasant Rosehill Shiraz 2022
    "Ferrous red loam over a limestone substrata. Always bright wines from this site, marked by pitched red fruit accents. Soaring florals from lilac to peony. Molten raspberry, tonka bean and licorice strap. Meaty with air. The tannins, buoyant and chiselled, a welcome relief to this mid-weighted wine's lilt of joy and effusive energy. Don't be fooled. This will age very well. Drink or hold." 95 Points, Ned Goodwin MW, JamesSuckling.com

    "Bright and deep purple-red colour; fresh earthy/terracotta and brown spice aromas; the intense and focused flavour sits easily in a medium bodied frame. Tannins are taut, fine and tense, and the finish lingers well. An elegant style of Hunter shiraz that drinks well now and will certainly age well. Pristine winemaking. A more powerful style of Rosehill than usual." 93 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review
    GW: Dried roses, boysenberry and classic Rosehill Shiraz character, but with a deeper more rugged, peppery and earthy cast. Medium-bodied, tannin slightly tough, red and blue fruit, pepper and spice, baked raspberry, and a slightly raw finish, but length is solid. It’s a bit closed in as a young wine, but should turn out pretty well. It’s a nice wine all up, from a more difficult vintage. 92+ points.
    KS: Sweet-sour at first, potpourri, dried roses, something little dusty/sweet tobacco ash. Spice and dark fruit, blackberries and black plums and black cherries, a bit of a fruit cake, sage and fresh green coffee beans. It’s cool in flavours, with furry tannins, but sitting cosy across the tongue. Relaxed. There’s a hint of black olive in the mix too. 93 points"

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.
