Crimson-purple; also tasted early; the bouquet is very fragrant, and the medium-bodied palate is wonderfully supple and smooth; there is an abundance of high quality fruit, with some red berries as well as dark. Great future.Drink By 2044: Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011

Winery Tasting Notes


Intense dark crimson red


Sweet red and black fruit notes with brown spice complexity and aromas of spicy vanillin oak


A sweet dark fruit palate with red spice supported by black fruit tannin and vanillin oak. The finish is rich with chocolatey tannins, vanillin oak and a core of rich, ripe fruits.

Wine Background

Affectionately known as ‘OP&OH’, this wine is entirely sourced from the Old Paddock (planted in 1921) and Old Hill (planted in 1880) vineyards. Hand picked in February, grapes are crushed and cold soaked for 24 hours prior to fermentation on skins, which takes place over 8-9 days in headed-down stainless steel containers, with pumping over twice daily. The wine is then pressed and transferred into new American and French oak hogsheads where primary and malolactic fermentation is completed. Every six months, the wine is racked off and returned to the same oak for a maturation period of 18 months.

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.
