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
Giles Kime - Sunday Telegraph 26/03/2012
Of the 2005 vintage, Giles Kime said: “While lightish pinot noir might be a more obvious match for pork, at this time of year, a glass or two of this zesty but weighty Semillon from Australia’s Hunter Valley will make a great partner.”
Victoria Moore - The Daily Telegraph 06/10/2012
Of the 2005 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "A wine I drink every Christmas with hot-smoked salmon and horseradish on lightly toasted white bread. It's slightly smoky, developed and delicious."

Of the 2005 vintage, Rob Buckhaven said: “…dazzles with apple.”
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.
