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.
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.
