The late Maurice O'Shea planted the Lovedale vineyard in 1946 with incredible foresight, recognising that the unique structure of the land and the surrounding environment would deliver the tightness and acidity for world-class Semillon. This wine provides exceptional drinking now or can be carefully cellared for up to fifteen years from vintage.

Expert Reviews

Still as fresh as a daisy, its freshness accentuated by a touch of CO2 spritz deliberately left in the wine; the result is an unusual conjunction of delicacy and intensity, the explanation lying in its purity. It is truly difficult to visualise the end point of a semillon such as this. Seven gold medals. Rating 97 - Drink by 2035, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2015).

It smells of an old sea bed. Lemon curd, brine, seashells. It virtually begs for seafood, though of course it’s more versatile than that. Stunningly aromatic. Glowing straw green. Quite a lot of spritz. Drinking beautifully already. Remarkably – almost ridiculously – complex. Everything you’d hope Lovedale Semillon to be. I drank it from a Burgundy glass and it just filled the bowl with aroma and flavour. Rating 95 - Drink by 2025+, Campbell Mattinson, (FEB/2016).

Winery Tasting Notes


Very pale straw with luminescent green hues.


Fresh limes and grapefruit, lemon blossom, and hints of pineapple.


Lively fresh palate with ripe citrus flavours, a fleshy palate with fine acidity and a long lingering finish. This is a seamless wine of intense citrus flavours and fine acid structure which drives the length of flavour on the palate. This wine will cellar to be a definitive example of the classic Hunter Semillon style.

Cellaring Potential

Carefully cellared, this wine will continue to mature for over 25 years.

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.
