Mount Pleasant Wines

Rosehill Limited Release Hunter Valley Shiraz 2006

See several previous tasting notes for this wine. This was made back in the day when Hunter Valley reds had strayed from their medium bodied, savoury, sweaty saddle origins to being riper and more full bodied like a South Australian Red. This was declared in a speech by Chief Winemaker at the time, Jim Chatto, at a dinner I attended at the winery. Also plenty of oak still evident at 15 years of age. I prefer the original Hunter Valley style which Mount Pleasant has wisely reverted to utilising the wonderful old vine fruit at its disposal. — 15 days ago

Matthew Single Vineyard Shiraz 1996

Think aged Shiraz is underrated. This really hit the spot. Showed really well with a surprising amount of fruit left and was a delicious bottle. — 7 days ago
