About The Wine
The Between Two Mountains Pinot Noir is the lighter, more ethereal Pinot Noir from Place of Changing Winds.
Taken from the plot of vines that has a view to both Mt Macedon and Mt Bullengarook in the chilled air of Macedon Ranges, this shows a more red-fruited profile, more freshness and a distinct transparency of site.
Organic viticulture and a minimal intervention approach to the winemaking craft behind this cuvee makes for an energetic, racy Pinot Noir that is approachable now but has more than enough architecture to develop over a decade in the cellar.
About Place of Changing Winds
The Place of Changing Years vineyard was planted by notable Australian wine importer, journalist, and author, Rob Walters.
Rob had hunted for a special site to plant in the cooler climes of Australia for many years. One day, esteemed grower/winemaker at Bindi, Michael Dhillon, called him and said, "Rob, I've found your vineyard."
The site sits at 500m above sea level in the Macedon Ranges. Rob has farmed it organically from the start. Planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at an incredible average of 15,000 vines per hectare, this is one of the most exciting emerging viticultural projects in the country.
Rob is one of the great thinkers in Australian wine. You can expect great things as his project begins to blossom.
