Chain of Ponds 2005 Adelaide Hills Nebbiolo
I was tempted to copy and paste [with appropriate referencing of course] Chain of Ponds website tasitng notes but I thought I'd keep it simple.
This is simply stunning and I can only ask how a 6 year old wine of this quality can still be available at this price today [June 2011]
It's medium bodied, showing some lovely bottle maturity but still offering layers of fruit complexity. And if you want to try something really worthwhile that's out of the mainstream this is an absolute must.
On second thoughts read their notes but I do worry about "thick orange hues"
Our Price: $17 per bottle by the dozen
