The name 'Three Ponds' originates from our three year-old son, Theodore; he thought the three dams on our family vineyard were ponds when he saw ducks swimming on them one afternoon.

Glowing yellow-green; has transformed from nymph to bright dragonfly, given 87 points on release in '04; it borders on nitpicking to suggest the abnormally low alcohol causes the palate to thin out on the finish. Rating 93 - Drink by 2019 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUL/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
A museum release of a most classic Hunter semillon, still displaying lifted lemon citrus aromas with an elegant balance of acid and fruit sweetness.
Wonderfully complex honey characters are beginning to develop with 7 years of ageing.
At only 9% alcohol, this is the sort of Hunter semillon one reads about but seldom sees and rarely gets to taste! Not many cases are left, so make sure to taste a wine that demonstrates Hunter semillon as the wine texts rave about.
