James Halliday 98 points. Jeremy Oilver 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
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....
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....
Wine Front 94 points. 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. #RED
James Halliday 94 points. 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 special I...
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. #RED
