Expert Reviews

Clear red-crimson; a classic in the making; at this early point in its life, the influence of place and of variety are equally balanced, appropriate given the balance struck between oak, tannins, fruit and acidity. It will change greatly as it ages, progressively taking on the character of three wines: initially resolutely youthful; then changing as it moves towards adulthood; and finally as a mature wine that has nothing left to prove.

Rating 96 - Drink by 2040 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2012)

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.
