With their eyes on the skies, the Mount Pleasant Winemakers endeavour to predict and plan around the seasonal uncertainty. It is these challenging conditions that make the Hunter Valley a wine region like no other.

About this Wine

Adrian Sparks

Colour

Aroma

Lifted tropical aromas of guava and honeydew melon with hints of floral honey.

Palate

Intense tropical fruits of pineapple, melon and fresh banana with refreshing acidity which lingers, giving a pleasing fruit driven persistence of flavour.

Vinification/Maturation

The fruit was brought to the winery in excellent condition maximising freshness and quality. The grapes were gently destemmed and very lightly crushed.  Only the highest quality free run juice was cold fermented with special yeast for a period of three weeks. After fermentation the wine was blended and bottled without any maturation to retain the highest level of freshness.
