Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, Mount Pleasant 'Philip' Shiraz is the personification of a distinguished family history dating back more than 130 years. Made in an authentic Hunter Shiraz style, this complex wine is crafted from small parcels cultivated in the premium subregion of Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley. The vineyard is farmed using sustainable techniques, such as employing mulch to nourish the vines and growing cover crops to increase the biodiversity in the soil. This sustainable approach has resulted in some of the healthiest vines on the estate in recent years; the vines have developed plentiful canopies, which have assisted in preventing fruit sunburn.

Winery

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 in the industry. Sadly, Maurice O’Shea passed away in 1956, but his legacy has been continued by top-class winemakers. In 2017, James Halliday was named Mount Pleasant Winery of the Year. In 2018, award-winning winemaker Adrian Sparks took over as the fifth Chief Winemaker and continues producing world-class wines from this renowned estate.
