Three Ponds Semillon 2004 – Re-Release
- Hunter Valley -
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.

Aged Hunter Semillon
Hunter Semillon is renowned for its ability to age a long time. Since Stelvin screwcaps became the Australian industry standard, problems with deteriorating corks and premature oxidation have become a thing of the past. Hunter Semillon's high natural acidity confers freshness and vibrancy when these wines are young. Typically Hunter Semillons enter an awkward stage about years 5-8, when they transition to their aged characters. When aged, the fruit characters of these wines are less obvious, with honey and toast more obvious on the palate, along with a beautiful golden colour. Wine collectors can cellars these wines with no qualms for up to 5 decades.
