Murray and Adrienne Cousins’ purchase in 1985 of a 220 hectare property situated between Lancefield and Kilmore on the Great Dividing Range saw the humble beginnings of Mt William winery. Situated on the northeast slopes of Mt William at an altitude of 605 metres the original plantings continue to provide fruit for both still and sparkling wines of award winning distinction.
Adrienne and Murray Cousins purchased a 220-ha grazing property in 1985; the sheep and Angus cattle remain the principal part of the general farming program, but between ’87 and ’99 they established pinot noir, chardonnay, cabernet franc and merlot. The quality of the wines has been consistently good, and are sold through a stone cellar door, as well as at a number of fine wine retailers around Melbourne.
Still pale straw-green after six years on lees; a very pure, very long and beautifully balanced wine with citrus and white peach fruit. Arguably the best of the three Mount William sparkling wines.
