Mount Pleasant

The vast Australian landscape provides a rich canvas of winemaking regions, but with its challenging climatic conditions and richness of unique sites, the Hunter Valley is one of the most characterful, celebrated and distinctive regions. Mount Pleasant’s legacy dates back to 1880, when English immigrant Charles King planted vines on rich, volcanic soil at the southern end of the Hunter Valley. In 1921, legendary winemaker Maurice O’Shea purchased and extended the property, naming it Mount Pleasant after the peak that rises behind the winery. Today, the winery is one of the most awarded in Australia, and under the direction of winemaker Jim Chatto, continues to release wines of a consistently high calibre.  James Halliday hailed Mount Pleasant Winery of the Year 2017, and also awarded the Maurice O'Shea Shiraz 2014 a score of 99/100.  The Lovedale Semillon 2011 was rated 19.5/20 by Richard Hemming MW on JancisRobinson.com.
