Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"The word 'Paddock' was often used by legendary winemaker Maurice O'Shea when naming his Hunter Valley vineyards and wines. And it's from the high paddocks throughout the region that some of its best plantings can be found. This 2014 High Paddock Shiraz uses fruit from younger vines on Mount Pleasant Estate that are sheltered from the winds and sun by the Brokenback ranges and produce a slightly different spectrum of red fruits."
95/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion (2014 Vintage)
"From three blocks of vines planted in ’02, relatively young for Mount Pleasant, matured 15 months in French puncheons (30% new). Clear colour; the highly expressive bouquet brings purple and black fruits into alignment with a sweet leather, earth and briar subtext, all adding up to Hunter Valley in giant neon letters. A beautiful medium-bodied Shiraz from a great vintage."
92+/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, July 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Ripe raspberry and blackberry, red earth, spice, pepper and aniseed. Medium bodied, bustling raspberry pip acidity, juicy and savoury at once, drag of tannin and clean lines, with a finish that will flesh out with a bit more bottle age. A little unevolved as yet, but a very good wine, typical of the region."
