Mount Pleasant, based in the Hunter Valley, was established in 1921 by the legendary winemaker Maurice O’Shea, from 16.3 hectares of adjoining parcels of land, which he named Mount Pleasant. As Chief Winemaker, Maurice went on to make some of Australia’s greatest wines and his reputation stands as the grandfather of Australian wine and a pioneer of the industry. In 2018 award-winning winemaker Adrian Sparks took over as the fifth Chief Winemaker and continues to produce world class wines from this renowned estate.
Aromas of ripe black and red berried fruits, supported by savoury and spice elements lead to intense fruits on the palate. Exquisite acidity and a distinguished tannin profile are hallmarks of the 1921 Vines Shiraz.
