Below are the details for Mount Pleasant Estate, Australia.
|Winery Name:||Mount Pleasant Estate, Australia
|Other Details:||McWilliam's Mount Pleasant Estate - nestled in the slopes of the Brokenback Range in NSW's lower Hunter Valley - was established in 1921 by legendary winemaker, the late Maurice O'Shea.
Today, the Hunter Valley is widely regarded as the home of semillon, and McWilliam's as the producer of Australia's best wines from the variety.
"Australian semillon is usually quite recognisable," said Mount Pleasant Chief Winemaker, Phillip Ryan. "When young it is austere and fresh. It has a high natural acidity even in the warm Hunter Valley region where it can age wonderfully. After some years of bottle age, it tends to develop rich buttery toasty flavours."
