Mount Pleasant's 2018 Mountain D had been awarded the prestigeous title of NSW Wine of the Year. This is the second year in a row Mount Pleasant has recieved this accolade, with the 2017 Old Paddock & Old Hill taking out last year's title.

"We are over the moon with today's result and full credit is due to the hardworking Mount Pleasant team who have dedicated so much of their time to creating magnificent wines that represent the unique landscapes of the Hunter Valley. 

Great vineyards are the first step in making great wines and we are fortunate to be the custodians of some of Australia's finest."

The Mountain Range wines pay homage to Maurice O’Shea’s talent as a master blender. He had an amazing ability to recognise small, unique parcels of land that would allow him to make wines in a designated style.

The NSW Wine Awards recognise quality wines produced in NSW, and provide an arena for both small and large producers to be judged alongside one another.
