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. Having been placed in the cellars for extended bottle age, this small parcel of Semillon now enjoys the benefits gained from patience.
