Inspired by the first visit of a reigning monarch to Australia in 1954, today McWilliam's Mount Pleasant Elizabeth is the embodiment of the synergy achieved by combining the noble grape variety Semillon and the Hunter Valley. Renowned for its unique ability to be enjoyed when fresh and admired when allowed to age gracefully, McWilliam’s celebrates both styles through Elizabeth. Having been placed in the Mount Pleasant cellars for extended bottle age, this small parcel of Semillon now enjoys the benefits gained from patience.

Pale golden with a hint of bright green hues. Fresh limes and grapefruit, lemon blossom, and hints of pineapple and cut grass complexity. Lively fresh citrus palate with ripe citrus flavours, a fleshy palate with fine acidity and a long lingering finish. This is a seamless wine of rich citrus flavours and fine acid structure hinting at the potential for this wine to cellar with great longevity.

All grapes for this wine were handpicked. At the winery they were de-stemmed, crushed, must chilled and the juice allowed to drain quickly in from the skins. After cold natural settling, the clear juice was racked off, warmed and inoculated with natural, neutral yeast for fermentation. The fermentation was slow and cool to retain the exceptional fruit flavour of the vintage. Three weeks after fermentation the wine was filtering before bottling, ensuring the retention of the very essence of the vineyard and the purity of the varietal character.
