About The Wine
The Clos de la Connerie section of Place of Changing Winds is the original plot of vines that was first planted in 2012. It's the heart of this most ambitious viticultural project and set to become one of the country's great cellar-worthy Pinot Noirs over the coming years.
The vines here are planted at an average of 12,500 vines per hectare. This intense competition amongst the vines creates a wine of power, density and incredible structure.
Clos de la Connerie shows rare qualities for new world Pinot Noir - the tannin structure is superb, the richness of fruit is incredibly impressive. Drink now or for the next decade plus.
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.
