Expert Reviews

Good colour; this wine is also from the Holman Vineyard, and is an assemblage of barrels not required for the Holman wine; its characters are similar, less complex and more fruity. Rating 90 - Drink by 2024 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUN/2011)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Three Ponds wines are made to showcase Hunter Valley fruit and winemaking at its best. Owned by the Iannuzzi and Tsironis families, Three Ponds combines European and modern Australian traditions of winemaking and viticulture. The name Three Ponds originates from Theodore Iannuzzi, who at age three referred to the three dams on our Broke vineyard as ponds. Theodore was obviously inspired by the ducks, lilies, reeds and dragonflies that he observed at the time. Thanks to Theodore, we named the Broke Vineyard and our premium range of wines Three Ponds. The Three Ponds vineyard lies on the sandy loam river flats of Monkey Place Creek, and was planted in 1970 by Neil Grosser. Along with his son David, Neil still carefully manages today, 40 years later! The Three Ponds Vineyard is planted to semillon, chardonnay, Verdelho, chambourcin, as well as some experimental varietals. Mount Eyre Vineyards’ second property, the Holman Estate, Pokolbin, represents a most exceptional site, and it is from Holman Estate that the Three Ponds premium reds are drawn. In the heart of the Hunter Valley, Holman Estate has deep red loams that have proven their worth and been shown by history to be the backbone of many great Hunter Valley red wines. At Holman Estate, we have shiraz, merlot and viognier, as well as some Italian varietals still in very small quantities. In excellent and exceptional years, Three Ponds produces small quantities of the Heirloom and Holman series of wines, for lovers of super-premium Hunter wines.
