This iconic wine is a fitting tribute to the legendary winemaker and Mount Pleasant founder, Maurice O’Shea, one of the most important figures in the modern Australian wine industry. The Maurice O’Shea Shiraz is the flagship red wine for Mount Pleasant and is a blend of the best fruit available, only made in the best years. Taken from the Old Hill, Old Paddock, Rosehill 1946 and 1965 Vines, it is a challenging and thought-provoking blend of the finest parcels from estate grown vineyards that highlight the best of each vintage. Characterised by power, balance, perfume and spice, the Maurice O’Shea Shiraz retains the classic hallmark Hunter style that O’Shea himself helped to define.

An utterly stupendous wine, in the same league as Penfolds 1962 Bin 60A. This O'Shea has the complexity of a great tapestry woven centuries ago when time was of no consequence. The sky, the soil and the fruit coalesce into an entity that throbs with intensity and a never-ending kaleidoscope of blackberry, earth and leather flavours.
