Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, this wine is the embodiment of the synergy achieved by combining the noble grape varietal Semillon and the Hunter Valley. Renowned for its unique ability to be enjoyed when fresh and admired when allowed to age gracefully. Mount Pleasant celebrates both styles through 'Elizabeth'. Crisp, lively and refreshing.
Pale lemon colour and a restrained, shy but clean and attractive aroma of undeveloped lemon and herbal semillon fruit. The pungency seen in an earlier tasting was not apparent this time. The palate is very delicate, restrained and fresh, with brilliant acidity and rapier-like fruit. For whatever reason, it doesn't show grassiness. Drink 2017 to 2027; Rating: 93 Points; Huon Hooke
The palest straw colour; there's a softness and approachability to this young semillon offering up easy-drinking appeal. Lavender bath salts, talcy with ultra-refreshing acidity, some sour pineapple, lemon blossom and kaffir lime leaves adding to a zesty, moreish wine. The requisite acidity will ensure it will develop more complexity in time. Jane Faulkner
Pretty as an absolute picture. Well. It’s a beauty. It’s ultra young and yet it’s drinking ultra well. It tastes of stones and citrus, slate and (whispers of) lemongrass. It’s dry to the point of sturdiness, acidic in a mellifluous way. There’s a slight spritz but it’s nothing to worry about. It’s long. One sip and I was hooked.
