The word 'Paddock' was often used by legendary winemaker Maurice O'Shea when naming his Hunter Valley vineyards and wines. And it's from the high paddocks throughout the region that some of its best plantings can be found. This 2010 High Paddock Shiraz captures the essence of the region and its story with lifted spicy red berry flavours framed by hints of subtle oak.

Expert Reviews

Doesn't take long to ensnare you with its relaxed, but very insistent, medium-bodied palate; it is a lowly entry point wine for the big guns of Mount Pleasant from '13, which is decidedly unfair. Rating 93 - Drink by 2025, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2015).

Lovely name for a wine, High Paddock. Perhaps a good place to watch New Year’s Eve fireworks. Mount Pleasant has become a winery to watch, once again. Not sure why we’ve missed reviewing the 2010 and 2011 iterations of this wine, but there you go.

Ripe red fruit, liquorice, brown spices and red earth. Medium bodied, well fruited, even acidity and gentle chalky tannin, dry finish of good length. Offers most of the things you want in a Hunter Shiraz, delivered at a very keen price. No complaints. Classic wine style, delivered with style. Rating 93 - Drink by 2025+, Gary Walsh, (JUL/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes


Intense dark red brick with vibrant magenta hues.


Dark plum fruit with generous amounts of spices of cinnamon, black pepper, and a hint of licorice.


Delicious dark fruits on the front palate with a silky mouth feel giving excellent structure, balance and length. Nicely balanced acid with a soft velvety tannin with excellent length.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant, home to the Old Hill Vineyard planted in 1880, is one of Australia’s most treasured vineyard sites.

The Estate was established in 1921 by the legendary winemaker Maurice O’Shea who also coined the property’s name – a name which would go on to grace his wine labels. O’Shea brought sophisticated blending and oak treatment techniques to his winemaking and his unique and inspired wines drew praise for their intensity of flavour and significant longevity.

In 1941, the McWilliam family acquired ownership of the Mount Pleasant winery. Holding a special talent for recognising the unique characteristics and longevity of Hunter Valley table wines, Chief Winemaker Maurice O’Shea was encouraged to pursue his creations.

There have been only three Chief Winemakers at Mount Pleasant since 1921, ensuring the winery’s consistency in wine style and quality. Current Chief Winemaker Phil Ryan joined McWilliam’s in 1965 at the age of 19 and his extensive contribution to the New South Wales wine industry was recognised when he was awarded the prestigious Graham Gregory Trophy.

The Mount Pleasant range draws from more than 90 years of vintage experience to deliver varietal classics and is today recognised for its powerful Hunter Valley Shiraz and dedication to creating benchmark Hunter Valley Semillon.Located just two hours North of Sydney, McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant creates some of Australia’s most celebrated and awarded wine styles.
