Mount Pleasant Rosehill Shiraz 2022


Categories: ,

First planted by Maurice O’Shea in 1946, the Rosehill Vineyard is a wonderful site.  Producing wines that are quintessentially Hunter Valley, they are bright, red-fruited and elegant, with the ability to age gracefully for the long term.  This single vineyard wine is a representation of the best of this vineyard in that specific year of production.

Awards & Reviews

Ferrous red loam over a limestone substrata. Always bright wines from this site, marked by pitched red fruit accents. Soaring florals from lilac to peony. Molten raspberry, tonka bean and licorice strap. Meaty with air. The tannins, buoyant and chiselled, a welcome relief to this mid-weighted wine’s lilt of joy and effusive energy. Don’t be fooled. This will age very well. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 95 points | Ned Goodwin MW,

Sweet-sour at first, potpourri, dried roses, something little dusty/sweet tobacco ash. Spice and dark fruit, blackberries and black plums and black cherries, a bit of a fruit cake, sage and fresh green coffee beans. It’s cool in flavours, with furry tannins, but sitting cosy across the tongue. Relaxed. There’s a hint of black olive in the mix too. 93 points |  Kasia Sobiesiak, The Wine Front

Tasting Notes

Red fruit and floral notes with a lovely complexing spice note.   An elegant focussed wine with lovely length and balanced, full of rich red fruits.

Drinking Window

Fresh and lovely as a young wine, the Rosehill Shiraz will reward those with patience, maturing in bottle for at least 25 years.
