McWilliam's Mount Pleasant Elizabeth Semillon

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
A fresh, finely weighted and sculpted traditional expression of Hunter semillon whose pure, delicate, lightly grassy and tobaccoey aromas of melon precede a pristine and charmingly fresh palate whose brightly lit and juicy core of melon fruit and lemon sherbet extends with excellent length and focus towards a fresh, vibrant finish.

Incredibly lifted and lively citrus fruit on the nose here, heading into grapefruit territory, a really fresh and ripe, mouth-watering, zesty nose. The palate roars with powerful fruit flavour and has impressive focus, line and length. Will age superbly.

Cellar Release. Glowing yellow-green; a complex bouquet of lemon and a hint of honey, the palate cruising serenely to full maturity over the next 5 years, and a long life thereafter. Top gold medal Sydney Wine Show '07.

Tyson Stelzer (2006 Vintage) says
An outstanding Elizabeth, maturing beautifully into a position of wonderful juxtaposition between the zesty vibrancy of lemon-accented youthfulness and the generous, toasty complexity of maturity. The finish is tight, tangy and energetic, maintaining lime zest vibrancy and notes of butter and roast nuts that hover with excellent persistence.

Classic lemon curd bouquet, with the merest hint of toast providing interest; zesty, lively and textbook Hunter semillon, thankfully under a screwcap; a healthy life ahead.

Developing superbly; still vibrant and lemony, with the first hints of toast starting to appear.

Museum. Bright, light green-gold; still has obvious C02 present, making it obvious this was always intended to be a late release, with a last hurrah for the cork; this bottle was absolutely delicious, with lemon and vanilla nuances, toast yet to appear.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Classic Hunter semillon with a delicate, but pristine aroma of honeydew melon, lemon and tobacco leaf. Long, smooth and polished, it's perhaps more concentrated that usual, delivering a refined, if slightly soapy palate of lingering fruit and dusty, herbal nuances. Very restrained, fine and elegant, likely to develop great complexity.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; very good bottle-developed combination of freshness and complexity; excellent length and acidity.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Has come into its own; offers great finesse and delicacy combined with honey, lime and a touch of toast; typical length and acidity. Four gold medals. Wet cork a worry, though.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Bright green-yellow; a great mix of youth and maturity; perfect line and length; citrus/lemon-driven; little toast developing so far. Multiple trophies.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Complex and intense, the fresh acidity in perfect balance and providing great length.

James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
Finally, McWilliam's has plucked up the courage to increase the price of this undervalued classic, although I will bet no one actually has to pay $18.95. It is still very youthful, with only a hint of the toasty characters to come; the palate is equally immature, delicately herbaceous, with a clean, lingering finish

James Halliday (1994 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow; there is a mix of honey, toast and a lesser amount of herb on the bouquet; the palate has marvellous zest and life, with a twist of lemon peel, and brisk acid on the finish. Has already accumulated four gold medals, with many more in store for it.

James Halliday (1993 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; the bouquet shows intense varietal character, with a mix of herbaceous and more honeyed fruit, together with hints of toast starting to develop. The palate is quite outstanding, with a lovely combination of honey and herbs; delicious mouthfeel and excellent structure. The best since 1987.
