Notes sourced from McWilliam’s Wines
Maurice O’Shea founded the Mount Pleasant Winery in the Lower Hunter Valley, Australia in 1921, and continued to make the wine there until his death in 1956. As a tribute to this great winemaker’s legendary reputation, a limited release of wines representing the very best that Mount Pleasant can produce is made available each year under the Maurice O’Shea label.
Grapes were picked end of February 1998 after textbook conditions during the ripening season and a dry sunny harvest yielding rich, full flavoured fruit. The wine was fermented for 7 days on skins with twice daily pumping over. The wine was then transferred to oak for completion of alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation on gross lees After completion of malolactic fermentation the wine was sulphured and matured in 100% new American oak hogsheads at 15ºC for 18 months. Cold stabilisation followed by coarse filtration with the wine being bottled in October 1999.
Dark red with purple hues. Intense aromas of plums, mulberries and spices with hints of iodine and leather. A densely concentrated wine with lashings of plum, spice and savoury flavours enveloped in firm, ripe tannins. The depth and purity of fruit creates a rich wine with amazing length and persistence. Under the appropriate conditions, 3-20 years.
