James Halliday 96 points. How can McWilliams deliver perfectly cellared, aged gems like this? This wine is drop dead delicious. Fresh and floral, not a hint of heaviness.

Jancis Robinson 16.5/20. "Pale greenish gold. Very direct, refreshing and somehow 'mineral' on the nose. Super juicy and succulent. Massive acidity and more than a hint of bone dry lime juice. Very racy and reverberant on the finish. Very youthful but jam packed with flavour despite its low alcohol. This should take on ever more layers."

Jancis Robinson Wine Reviews 17.5/20. "Deep lemon-gold. Smoky, almost TDN-laced, stony, toasty notes. Preserved lemon and lime. Plenty of development. Medium to medium-full bodied. Nutty, spicy, rich and full. Crisp backbone of acidity holds the long finish, with again some phenolics. "(TJ) Tim Jackson MW. #aged

Huon Hooke 96 points. Jancis Robinson Wine Reviews 17.5/20. "Mid-deep lemon-gold. Developing notes of nutty, waxy, preserved lemons. Rich and inviting. Rounded, toasty lemon and nuts. Certainly some richness of development. Long, with an old cream touch to the finish." (TJ) Tim Jackson MW #aged

Jeremy Silver 96 points. Jancis Robinson Wine Reviews 17.5/20. "Waxy, lanolin - so delicious and distinct. Super fruit clarity - lemon curd, cream. Just slightly feral and funky too, but that adds rather than detracts interest. Exemplary." Richard Hemming MW. Wine Advocate 95 points. "The 2009 Lovedale Semillon provides intense lime juice and lime leaf aromas with a muted undercurrent of lemongrass, chalk and orange blossom. Very crisp on the palate with nice nervy intensity though youthfully tight / closed. Minerally with a long citrusy finish. Drink 2012 to 2022." LPB Apr 2010. #aged

Gold Medal and Trophy, Hunter Valley Wine Show. Six Other Gold Medals James Halliday 97/100 "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." Stelvin Drink to 2035 Campbell Mattison 95/100 "This was held back; the 2011 was released prior to it. Because it just needed a little more time. It smells of an old sea bed. Lemon curd, brine, seashells. It virtually begs for seafood, though of course it’s more...

Jancis Robinson Wine Reviews 17.5/20. "Mid-lemon gold. Toast and dust. Lots of maturity to waxed lemons. Medium bodied with racy, lively acidity but enough waxy, lanolin character to hold the acidity. Lots of weight, with a long, creamy finish and some phenolic grip too. Classy." (TJ) Tim Jackson MW. James Halliday 96 points. "96/100 - As if by alchemy, aged semillon slips into a waxy realm of toast, buttery brioche and lime marmalade without its acidity wavering. This certainly has freshness and plenty of years ahead of it." #aged

96 Points - Jane Faulkner - Halliday's Wine Companion As if by alchemy, with age semillon slips into a toasty, butter brioche, lime-marmalade and waxy realm without its acidity wavering. This certainly has freshness and plenty of years ahead of it, but that magical 5-years-before-release-date includes all the other complex stuff. 95 Points - Huon Hooke - The Real Review Medium yellow colour. Straw, hay and subtle lemon juice aromas; some nuttiness. The palate is delicate and intense, refined and tight, dry and long. It’s still remarkably youthful and has a long career ahead of it. The palate is pin-point precise and searingly intense....

SG$199.00

Gold Medal and Trophy, Hunter Valley Wine Show. James Halliday 99 points. Arguably, one of the greatest red vintages in living memory', says Mount Pleasant. The flagship wine. Destemmed and crushed, short cold soak, open-fermented, matured in large format French oak (30% new) for 18 months. Has the gently throbbing power of a Rolls Royce; superb, deep crimson-purple hue, itself rare in the Hunter Valley. Countless layers of black fruits have absorbed the oak and put the undoubted tannins into limbo land. O'Shea would have died a happy man had this been his last wine. Dissecting it now is an academic exercise at best, so great is its future....

It is a little known fact that the block of Pinot Noir directly in front of the Mount Pleasant winery is one of the oldest plantings of the famed MV6 (Mothervine 6) clone in Australia and that the majority of the plantings in this country have been propagated using cuttings from this block.

Gold Medal, Hunter Valley Wine Show. Gary Walsh, Wine Front, 95+ points. A blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Pinot Noir. Small production. Big heart. It’s a wine that most often brings a smile to my face, and for a slightly jaded animal such as myself, that’s something of a small joy. Fine, perfumed, juicy, supple, are words that roll quickly off the keyboard as I taste. In terms of detail, well I’m thinking raspberry, a touch of smokiness, chocolate wrappers and other happy things. There’s a gentle graininess to the tannin, a coolness to the acidity, and a fine almost savoury finish. It’s a beautiful wine. Something different, and quite...

NSW Wine of the Year 2018. Trophy, Best Red NSW Wine Awards. Trophy, Best Shiraz, NSW Wine Awards. James Halliday 97 points. Gary Walsh, Wine Front, 95+ points. James Suckling 96 points. One of the few remaining Mount Pleasant wines that sees some new small format oak, though I’d suggest the usage here is a long way from being excessive. The consensus at the winery seems to be that the ‘Estate’ wines really shone in 2017. I’d not argue. Dark fruit, boysenberry, pepper, hazelnut, liquorice, that distinct hillside earthiness, and sensible vanilla oak in support. Medium to full-bodied, deep in fruit and concentration, yet like most of...

Huon Hooke 95 points. One of the great old-vine reds of the Hunter, in top form in 2013. Smoky, coal-dusty aromas overlying dark cherry with subtle notes of earth, spice and leather. It’s intense and tightly focused, lively with energising acidity, concentrated flavour and abundant fine tannins. HH.

James Halliday 98 points. Destemmed, cold soak, open-fermented, 11 days on skins, matured in small format French oak (35% new) for 15 months. Enthralling, intense finesse, a juicy, vibrant mouthfeel and flavour delivery that is quite exceptional. If you don't want to partake in vinocide, leave the O'Shea alone and drink this. Seldom has terroir spoken with such eloquence in Australia. Feb 2016, wwwwinecompanion.com.au James Suckling 97 points. A very complex young wine that really draws you in on both the nose and palate. Smells of ripe dark fruits, plum paste, boysenberry and black cherry, redder notes too, then dried leaves and dried woody...

Gold Medal, Hunter Valley Wine Show. James Suckling 95 points. Gary Walsh, Wine front, 95 Points. Rosehill is always one of the prettiest wines from the Hunter Valley, and no change here. The vineyard talks. Pretty, floral, a little pepper, red fruits and vanilla. Medium-bodied, flow and charm, succulence and composure, mildly peppery tannin, bright and fresh, milk chocolate, fine dusty tannin trailing with red fruit sweetness and perfume on a fine finish. Typical and lovely. More to come. If you like Rosehill, you’ll find much to love here. Just into 95 points: its class gets it over the line. GW.
