The 2010 Leontine Hunter Valley Chardonnay and the 2010 Mothervine Pinot Noir launch this month and will be joined in September this year by the McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant 2012 reds.

McWilliam’s Wines CEO, Robert Blackwell (pictured), said the company is looking forward to throwing its weight behind what it believes to be promising new wines.

“Two new wines from the McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant range will be launched early in 2012, the 2010 Leontine Hunter Valley Chardonnay and 2010 Mothervine Pinot Noir,” Blackwell said.

“These releases will be followed in September 2012 with the release of our 2010 McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant Hunter Valley red wines. Following the success of the 2009 release, we’re really looking forward to seeing these celebrated wines on the market.”

Blackwell went on to describe the wines as having synergy between old and new wine styles, adding that all wines in the Mount Pleasant range a true expressions of Hunter Valley wines.

“We are aiming to capture the fruit expression of the unique vineyards, and with winemaking influence and style, make wines which are unique, complex and evoke thoughts and discussions,” said Blackwell.

”These wines are from low yielding old-vine vineyards and hand-crafted, highly detailed winemaking – a representation of the passion of winemaking working to promote the powerful expressions of Hunter fruit.”
