Three Ponds Semillon 2019, Hunter Valley
You can not meet a family owned and managed business more grounded in magnificent European hospitality, right down to the home made biscuits you receive when meeting them for the first time. Three Ponds originates from Theodore Iannuzzi, who at age three referred to the three dams on their Broke vineyard as ponds. The Three Ponds vineyard was planted in 1970 by Neil Grosser, whom along with his son David, Neil, still carefully manages the vineyard today, 40 years later! Young Semillon is not normally known to have such presence, but this wine displays enormous length and complexity already. This is a very fine wine with enormous cellaring potential. A great classic in the making.
