Founded in 1921 by the legendary Maurice O’Shea, whose contribution to Australian wine cannot be understated. Widely recognised for setting the standard for modern Australian winemaking, his ‘fanatical perfectionism’ saw him create Mount Pleasant’s signature style of elegance, balance and exceptional longevity. For 100 years, Mount Pleasant has produced iconic, elegant and expressive wines championing the fruit and individual character of our four vineyard sites. The rare ancestral vines include some of the oldest clone plantings in the country. This makes the Old Hill vineyard, while best known for Shiraz, the oldest Pinot Noir vineyard in Australia.

Rosehill 1965 vines is a special site planted by Brian Walsh, 3 small blocks uniquely planted to provide great contrast on the one soil type. 3 parcels all picked and fermented separately, with one parcel utilizing around 10% Whole bunches.  A short cold soak and fermentation time, before pressing to tank and transfer to large format French oak at 20% new.  After 11 months the wine was blended and bottled.  

No 1946 Rosehill released this year (I know people will ask). They decided it didn’t make the cut for the $135 wines, and was placed into the less expensive Mountain wine. Praise the praiseworthy. Oh, and I thought the tannin profile in this wine felt like stroking a sage leaf, but then put myself into Pseuds Corner. Ripe raspberry and other red fruits, pretty dried rose and Rosehill X-Factor, sweet spice and earth. Medium-bodied, juicy dark red fruits, medium-bodied, hazelnuts in the mix, dense tannin with a velour-like texture, long and perfumed to finish. Beautiful Shiraz. Tasted: October 2020; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $135; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2022-2040; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
