2019 Mount Pleasant Maurice O’Shea Shiraz Hunter Valley – Maurice O’Shea was a pioneer of Australian wine, creating long-lived, highly celebrated wines from the 1920’s through to the 1950’s that were admired the world over. Named in Maurice O’Shea’s honour, this wine was crafted using the very best rigorously selected parcels from the Mount Pleasant Estate to create a wine that firmly speaks of its Hunter Valley home.
The Maurice O’Shea Shiraz is the flagship red wine for Mount Pleasant and is a blend of the best fruit available, only made in the greatest years. Taken from the Old Hill, Old Paddock, Rosehill 1946 and 1965 Vines, it is truly a complex and unique wine, exhibiting an almost euphoric sense. Fermented at for approximately 9 days. Gently pressed to less than 20% large new format French oak barrels for almost 14 months maturation, before blending and bottling.
Amazingly Intense red and black fruits combine with spice to create a beautiful and complex aroma. Powerful fruits come to the fore, with perfect acid and tannin balance providing an exhilarating intensity and length.
Drinking over the next 30+ years.
