Halliday Top Drops

The 2016 Halliday Wine Companion has been released and Mount Pleasant Wines has continued its dominance in producing exceptional wines out of the Hunter Valley and has once again been awarded a 5 red star winery status (highest possible rating, only awarded to Australia’s top wineries).

James Halliday said of our winery…

“Mount Pleasant is going to continue to throw down the gauntlet to all other wineries in the Hunter Valley. Its offer this year is extraordinary: 14 of 17 wines tasted given value symbols, with an awesome array of wines between 97 and 98 points. When the ’14 vintage reds come on stream next year, it will surely be unstoppable.”
