RegionHunter Valley, NSW
ColourBright green hues.
AromaClassic citrus characters of lime & lemongrass predominate with wonderful intensity and purity. With bottle age comes lovely honey toast notes and lanolin.
PalateAn elegant yet intense palate of pure Semillon fruit providing great line and length. This is a seamless wine of rich citrus flavours and fine acid structure hinting at the potential for this wine to cellar with great longevity.
Growing ConditionsA very good growing period with above average Winter and Spring rainfall resulted in an excellent crop. Late December 2008 was very dry and early January 2009 was both dry and hot. The fruit was carefully handpicked in the cool morning period to retain freshness and to ensure quality.
Vinification/MaturationAll grapes for this wine were handpicked. At the winery they were de-stemmed, crushed, must chilled and the juice allowed to drain quickly from the skins. After cold natural settling, the clear juice was racked off, warmed and inoculated with a natural, neutral yeast for fermentation. The fermentation was slow and cool to retain the exceptional fruit flavour of the vintage. Three weeks after fermentation the wine was filtered before bottling, ensuring the retention of pristine varietal character.

Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, today Mount Pleasant Elizabeth is the embodiment of the synergy achieved by combining the noble grape variety Semillon and the Hunter Valley. Renowned for its unique ability to be enjoyed when fresh and admired when allowed to age gracefully, Mount Pleasant celebrates both styles through Elizabeth. Having been placed in the Mount Pleasant cellars for extended bottle age, this small parcel of Semillon now enjoys the benefits gained from patience.
