Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, this wine is the embodiment of the synergy achieved by combining the noble grape varietal Semillon and the Hunter Valley. Renowned for its unique ability to be enjoyed when fresh and admired when allowed to age gracefully. Mount Pleasant celebrates both styles through 'Elizabeth'.

Wine Front

"It’s very light as at now, nice and pure, and kind of water coloured in a way, but there’s enough flavour to get the job done. Fresh lime and lemon barley water, lemongrass. Cool and a little flinty, with a good finish, pale lemon accented in the aftertaste. Subtle, yes, but for me, the beauty is in the fine detail."
