To this day, Mount Pleasant continues to preserve the heritage of labels which played a role in the evolution of Australian wine. Slightly bolder in palate structure than it's regional siblings, Philip is the classic style of Hunter Valley Shiraz, a name that's been relied upon for decades. An affable wine, without excessive tannin or alcohol, exhibiting the complexity and inimitable charm of the Hunter. Generous and smooth, articulating earth and spice, dominated by masculine fruit characters. Every release guarantees a splendid Philip, a Shiraz with a tradition of excellence.
Mount Pleasant is situated on the slopes of Brokenback Ridge in Hunter Valley. Inaugurally released in 1965, Philip Shiraz maintains the tradition of extended oak maturation and bottle age before release. Vinification normally begins around February, fruit is harvested and crushed into a mix of open top and static fermenters for three days of cold soak. The musts are inoculated and batches are treated to a course of ten days plunging and pumpover, extracting optimal flavours, colour and tannin. Components are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new oak barrels for completion of ferments and fifteen months maturation, before assembling into the finished wine.
TASTING NOTES
Bright crimson red. Varietal and regional aromas of ripe red and black fruits, black cherries with plum over an earthy, savoury complexity complemented by subtle chocolate oak. The medium bodied, savoury palate shows generous red fruit flavours, plum and blackberries beautifully supported by fine grained tannin, the chocolateyness of it's dashing oak complexity. A sophisticated wine of refinement, subtlety and great length.

About Mount Pleasant Wines
McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant Estate nestled in the slopes of the Brokenback Range in the Hunter Valley was established in 1921 by legendary winemaker, Maurice O’Shea
The Griffith-based McWilliam family, already a famous Australian wine company, purchased a half share of the Estate and encouraged O’Shea to continue with his winemaking style and creations. McWilliam’s acquired the remaining share in 1941. It was with the McWilliam family’s financial backing O’Shea selected and purchased the Lovedale and Rosehill properties and planted them in 1946. O’Shea’s groundbreaking work has been kept alive by revered winemakers Brian Walsh and Phil Ryan. The fact that there have been just three Chief Winemakers at Mount Pleasant since 1921 has ensured consistency of wine style and quality. Mount Pleasant»
