2017 Mount Pleasant High Paddock Shiraz Hunter Valley – The word ‘Paddock’ was often used by legendary winemaker Maurice O’Shea when naming his Hunter Valley vineyards and wines. It is also from the high paddocks throughout the region that some of its best plantings can be found. This High Paddock Shiraz uses fruit from younger vines on Mount Pleasant Estate that are sheltered from the winds and sun by the Brokenback ranges and produce a slightly different spectrum of red fruits.
Intense blackberry, black currant and spice are all evident with underlying notes of licorice, cinnamon and toast. The palate is dense with black fruits. Silky and long with wonderful balance with supporting oak providing excellent framework with intense fruit and soft acidity driving focus and finesse.
