About The Wine
While the Macedon Ranges may be home base for Place of Changing Winds, owner Rob Walters has also tended an organic vineyard in Heathcote for some years.
Here, the two worlds collide - a blend of the ethereal Pinot Noir from the Macedon site and Syrah from Heathcote - it's a sort of 'beauty and the beast' combination that has created a stunning, vibrant red of beguiling charm.
It's soft, slippery and super-smooth to drink. It's a fitting homage to the great red wines of Maurice O'Shea from the 1950s and 1960s.
It's the very model of a modern Australian red wine.
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.
