Expert Reviews

Vivid crimson, clear and bright; the bouquet does not entirely prepare you for the great structure this wine has courtesy of fine, persistent tannins to support the youthful juicy red and black fruits. Drink By 2030: Rating 94 -James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2011)

Wine Background

When Maurice O’Shea bought the Rosehill land, with the support and backing of the McWilliam family, in 1946, he was looking for a similar site to that of Mount Pleasant. What he found was a parcel of rich, volcanic loam soil and planted the Rosehill Vineyard. Mount Pleasant Rosehill Shiraz exemplifies the rich Hunter Valley Shiraz style and confirms that O’Shea got his site selection perfectly right.

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.
