2011 Mount Pleasant Phillip Hunter Valley Shiraz

mount pleasant phillip shirazMore approachable than the OP&OH and Rosehill in its youth although best to thoroughly decant it right now. That’ll take the edginess away from the acidity. There’s less oak apparent but it still benefits from time to relax and feel at home in its surrounds.

Softer fruits both red and black with a plum bass line and some latent leather and earth. Pepper and vanilla, grainy tannin. Moderate length. Good value and should show better in a few years. 88
