Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, Mount Pleasant Philip Shiraz is the personification of a distinguished family history dating back more than 130 years. Made in an authentic Australian Shiraz style, this complex wine is crafted from small parcels cultivated in Australia's most premium wine regions. It is medium bodied and generous with attractive aromas of forest fruits and exotic spices, joined by raspberries and dark fruits and complimented by judicious oak and fine grained tannins.
