  • TASTING NOTE: “A wild card, a surprise package. A wine of energy, febrile tension, freshness and drawl. It’s all wild, brambly red berries, dusty, fine tannin, blood orange (pleasing) sweet-bitterness, fine, dark chocolate mellow qualities and faint game meat savouriness. It feels decidedly light and bright, sure, complex, layered, some intensity, but the vim and vigour here is undeniable. This will slake a thirst.” 94 Points - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
  • ABOUT THE WINE: This wine is now released with an extra year’s aging. It comes from an east-facing plot of 20+-year-old vines rooted in the red Cambrian soils of the Mount Camel Range in Heathcote’s north. Although this sub-region can produce some of Heathcote’s most refined wines, it is still an area that lends itself to growing powerful Syrah, so it gets an additional year in cask. The 2021 spent its first year in a range of Stockinger cask and concrete tank before being blended to one 2,000-litre Stockinger cask for the remainder of its maturation. It was bottled at the end of November 2023 after 33 months’ aging. It is a gorgeous, dark-fruited expression of this famous region. At 13% alcohol, it is in no way heavy and, in fact, is quite the “refreshing” contrast to many wines released from the area. Only around 10% new oak used. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Place Of Changing Winds is the vineyard project of famed Australian wine importer and author, Robert Walters. Having spent three decades working with and learning from some of the worlds great wine producers, POCW is Roberts effort to put all that he has learned into practice. The result is an organically managed, high density vineyard in the Macedon Ranges, planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. From 2019 POCW has also produced Syrah and Marsanne from a vineyard in Heathcote that had originally been managed in collaboration with Rhone Valley legend Alain Graillot.
