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.

Oh, the perfume. Sweet raspberries at first. Velvety rose petals, cherry blossom, high-toned red apple skin. More of the aromatic accents show up moments later, sage, thyme and turned earth. It’s very expressive with only 15% Pinot, but the character of a 100 year old vines is shamelessly overtaking 85% Shiraz. Aromas finish on a clovey note. Flavours are subtle and fine-grained with a eucalyptus leaf freshness. They go for about forever (+1 to length) with chalky succulence and a black tea grip. Oh, and the peppery spice. It’s a liquid charm. Date: Dec 2022; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $40; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2022-2032; Rated: 96 Points; Kasia Sobiesiak; The Wine Front
