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.

From the oldest Pinot Noir plantings in Australia. Well, it’s identifiably Pinot Noir, but with that idiosyncratic twist that the Hunter Valley offers, which I like. Cherry, rhubarb, a little earth, light cedar oak and biscuit spice oak, potpourri and aniseed. It’s medium-bodied, red fruit but also slightly tarry, yet lively too, with good depth and presence, and fine-grained tannin, and no shortage of length. So charming and different, but you can taste the old vine power. It’s a fine vintage for Mount Pleasant Pinot Noir. I love it.
