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....
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.

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.
