2018 Mount Pleasant 1946 Vines Rosehill Vineyard Shiraz Hunter Valley – The planting of these Shiraz vines in 1946 by Maurice O’Shea demonstrates his thorough understanding of the Hunter Valley landscape. The Rosehill vineyard is home to a unique soil structure, allowing for a medium bodied, floral style of Shiraz, providing a contrast to the more robust Shiraz grown on Old Hill and Old Paddock. Elegant and restrained, the 1946 Vines consistently produce stunning Hunter Valley Shiraz.
Stunning florals on the nose, as is characteristic of the Rosehill vineyard. Intense red fruits and subtle spice follow. Classically medium-bodied, with red fruit driven density and lovely acidity. A long, elegant finish with fine grain old-vine tannins. Perfect with roast turkey and cranberry sauce.
Drinking well now and over the next 20 years.
