Mount Pleasant 'Maurice O'Shea' Hunter Valley Shiraz 2017

The flagship wine of Mount Pleasant, the Maurice O'Shea Hunter Valley Shiraz is only made in exceptional vintages. It is a blend of the best fruit from Mount Pleasant's oldest vineyards, the Old Hill, Old Paddock, Rosehill 1946 and 1965 vines, which are low-yielding and produce ripe concentrated flavours. The carefully selected fruit was destemmed into open top fermenters and after fermentation was then gently pressed to large format French oak barrels, of which less than 20% were new, for almost 14 months’ maturation before blending and bottling. Amazingly intense red and black fruits combine with spice to create beautiful and complex aromas, perfect balance and refined tannins culminating in a dramatic finish.
