Mount Pleasant Maurice O'Shea Shiraz 2007

I don't get to try a lot of Hunter Valley shiraz, which is a pity because I like them.  Not many seem to make it to Melbourne, apparently.  This wine is very good.  It has an aroma of leather, plums and pepper.  Typical Hunter Valley.  The palate is similar (minus the leather), with good length.  89 points.

Abv: 14.8%
Price: $60
Would I buy it having tasted it? Yes
