Mount Pleasant Elizabeth Hunter Semillon 75Cl
Sorry, this product is currently not available.
Semillon - White Australian Wine
Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, today Mount Pleasant 'Elizabeth' is the embodiment of the synergy achieved by combining the noble grape varietal Semillon and the Hunter Valley. This small batch of Cellar Aged 'Elizabeth' Semillon, afforded a minimum of five years bottle maturation, is the reward of careful patience.
Mount Pleasant Estate was established by legendary winemaker Maurice O' Shea in 1921. Recognising qualities within his wine that reflected the personalities of family and friends, these wines continue a tradition of honouring those characters who shape our lives.

During the growing season we were fortunate to have significant rain events at critical times of the growing cycle. Mild temperatures during December contributed to the overall quality of the vintage, particularly the favourable mild conditions of the critical veraison period around Christmas and New Year. The vines held excellent canopy structures during the ripening period leading to the development of full rich flavour profiles and balanced sugar and acid ratios.
All varieties ripened to their full potential during an unseasonably dry January. Semillon was harvested in perfect condition, with ferments showing intense varietal characters and flavours; as would be expected from the dry year. 2007 has proved to be an outstanding vintage with stellar wines!
All grapes for this wine were handpicked. At the winery they were de-stemmed, crushed, must chilled and the juice allowed to drain quickly from the skins. After cold natural settling, the clear juice was racked off, warmed and inoculated with natural, neutral yeast for fermentation. The fermentation was slow and cool to retain the exceptional fruit flavour of the vintage. Three weeks after fermentation the wine was filtered before bottling, ensuring the retention of pristine varietal character.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 3 years
