McWilliam's Mount Pleasant Old Paddock and Old Hill Shiraz draws its fruit from the original Shiraz vines grown on the famous Old Hill Vineyard planted in 1880 and the nearby Old Paddock Vineyard, which was established by the late Maurice O'Shea in 1921. These prized vineyard sites have contributed to producing this richly flavoured, memorable wine since the very first vintage in 1967.

Expert Reviews

Deep crimson, vivid hue; a pure, complex and seductive bouquet of red and blue fruits, spices and liqueur soaked plums; despite the elegance, the latent power and ample fine-grained tannins almost move this in to the full-bodied spectrum, with the oak merely showing glimpses on the finish; beautifully detailed and polished, with an extremely long life ahead.

Winery Tasting Notes


Intense dark red brick with vibrant magenta hues


Elegantly perfumed sweet lifted ripe raspberry notes with spicy dark chocolate oak complimented by an earthy and nutty nuance.


The front palate displays ripe red fruits of raspberry and strawberry, which is married to the mid palate adding poise and structure. The palate exhibits great depth with a beautiful acid line linking the fruit from the front palate to the back palate. Very fine silky tannins complete the finish of the wine and delicately coat the mouth leaving a pleasant and very persistent lingering flavor.

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.
