Three Ponds Chardonnay 2005 is a classic, full bodied Hunter Chardonnay. Rich melon fruit and stone fruit flavours intermingle with the creamy complexity of the French oak. This wine is now very smooth and complex, thanks to its maturity in the bottle. It will continue to drink well and build in complexity at least until 2015. A wine for lovers of classic chardonnays.
Winemaker – C.P.Lin. Stelvin closure.
For those of you wanting something special and different, we highly recommend this wine! Aged Hunter Chardonnay is a gem that is totally unrecognised!
Comments from Dr Ron Georgiou MW (August 2015):
Yellow in colour but still youthful. The nose is fine with rich, ripe melon and tropical fruit characters. On the palate there is a significant balance with medium acidity, toasty oak and silky and complex barrel ferment characters. This wine’s contact with lees, combined with its youthful 10 years in bottle has created a magic, complex wine in a Burgundian style; wonderful stuff.
