2018 Mount Pleasant Rosehill Vineyard Shiraz Hunter Valley – First planted by Maurice O’Shea in 1946, the Rosehill vineyard features a north easterly aspect and a unique volcanic soil structure atypical for the Hunter Valley. These ancient soils contribute to the distinctive character of Rosehill shiraz, delivering a sophisticated wine of complexity, elegance and grace. The highest point on the valley floor, at 100 metres above sea level, the Rosehill vineyard is one of only a handful of highly prized vineyard sites in the region planted on a unique and ancient volcanic soil structure. Thirty hectares of old shiraz vineyards are planted on the contours of the land, rising on a northerly slope.
Intense red forest fruits, plum, subtle spice and the iconic Rosehill florals. Plummy and perfectly medium-bodied. Ripe red fruits dominate the fore, but a tight tannin structure brings balance with subtle spice.
Match with Peking duck with a fresh Asian salad.
