Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Effusive and intense the complex aroma carries all the attributes of young Hunter Semillon; lemon, lime, passionfruit, sherbet, with hints of cut straw.
The palate is fine, delicate and persistent with fine acidity and a juicy, fleshy mid palate.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 9 years
Rob Buckhaven - Fabulous Magazine, The Sun 17/02/2013
Of the 2005 vintage, Rob Buckhaven said: “…dazzles with apple.”
Jane MacQuitty - The Times 07/12/2013
Of the 2005 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "Enjoy this deep gold, toasty, tangy, lemon curd of a wine, complete with an impressively long nutty, toasted almond finish. Drink it now with big food and even turkey with all the trimmings, or tuck it away for a few years for more toasty, honeyed, lime flavours to develop."
Giles Kime - Sunday Telegraph 29/12/2013
Of the 2005 vintage, Giles Kime said: "The complex character and zesty freshness in this delicious white from Australia's Hunter Valley make it an obvious match for the delicious combination of flavours in this leftover salad. It's a great partner to poultry, as well as the pronounced flavours of smoked salmon."
McWilliam's Mount Pleasant Estate was established by legendary winemaker Maurice O'Shea in 1921. Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, today McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant ‘Elizabeth’ is the embodiment of the synergy achieved by combining the noble grape variety Semillon and the Hunter Valley. Having been placed in the Mount Pleasant Cellars for extended bottle age, this small parcel of Semillon now enjoys the benefits gained from patience.
The Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest and one of its most well-known wine regions. Here you will find world-class Hunter Valley Semillon that has been called ‘Australia’s unique gift to the world’, great Australian Shiraz that lasts for decades, and longstanding family winemakers who for generations have turned the soil and harvested the vine. The climate in the Hunter Valley is moderate, similar to a Mediterranean climate. January is the hottest month and July the coldest.
