Tasting Notes

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.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 9 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

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

Rob Buckhaven - Fabulous Magazine, The Sun 17/02/2013

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."

Jane MacQuitty - The Times 07/12/2013

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."

Background

History

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.

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.
