Mount Pleasant is situated on the slopes of the Brokenback Range in the Hunter Valley, NSW. The estate was established in 1921 by the legendary winemaker Maurice O’Shea who recognised the special characteristics and longevity of Hunter Valley table wines. To this day, Mount Pleasant continues to bottle-age commercial quantities of wines until they are considered at their peak to release.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright crimson red.
Varietal and regional aromas of ripe red and black fruits with earthy and savoury complexity complemented by subtle chocolate oak.
The medium bodied, savoury palate shows generous red and black fruit flavours, beautifully supported by fine grained tannin and chocolate oak complexity. This is a sophisticated wine with refinement, subtlety and great length.
Braised Shiraz marinaded Venison with swiss brown mushrooms; Crushed black Pepper studded sirloin steak, creamy garlic potatoes.
Drinking beautifully now, or can be cellared carefully for up to ten years from vintage.
