Hunter Valley Semillon

Mount Pleasant Wines

Lovedale Hunter Valley Sémillon 2009

A beautiful example of aged Hunter Valley Semillon. Lanolin, Wet Hay a little toast and very little honey at this stage. A lovely waxy texture on the palate. Plenty of acid and still a good future. 7 Trophies on the Australian Show Circuit as you can see above the label. — 4 days ago

Hunter's Shiraz 2017

Didn’t have a grenache handy, but this is filling the role really nicely. Red fruit end of the shiraz spectrum, featuring some cherry along with fragrant black currant It’s young and bright and medium bodied - probably better in time but still really nice. — 15 hours ago

Super easy drinking
Still extremely young
Hints of lanolin only
Not toasty yet
I have one more bottle and I should wait 3 to 5 years at least, unless the other bottle took another direction.... WTH...

Hunter Valley Shiraz 2016

This will likely age well because of the high acidity. Lots of citrus on the palette. Light and refreshing. — 7 days ago

Rosehill Limited Release Hunter Valley Shiraz 2005

I once heard chief winemaker at Mount Pleasant, Jim Chatto, give a speech saying that stylistically Mount Pleasant was copying South Australia in making riper richer Shiraz back around 2000 to 2009. This wine reflects that. These days they have returned to a more traditional medium weight yet still long living style. This wine is much more dense ripe and concentrated but still with traces of Hunter Valley earthiness and sweaty saddle. Even at 14 years this wine has a long future in front of it. Of my 2 remaining bottles I will have the next one in 2025. — 13 days ago
