About The Pack

The Place of Changing Winds project is an almost masochistic undertaking from Robert Walters and crew, taking Australian viticulture to the nth degree and pushing the limits of quality that can be achieved when no expense is spared, no man hour is resented, where nothing but extreme quality and uncompromising standards are valued. It’s a nauseatingly painstaking process which has lead them to this release.

Here you can try four of the extremely limited releases from 2019, including the elite 2019 Place of Changing Winds High Density Pinot Noir which was awarded 99 points by James Halliday.

Only six packs available.

2019 Place of Changing Winds High Density Pinot Noir

99 points

"From vines planted at 20,000 to 33,000 vines per ha. Another dimension altogether, with utterly exceptional intensity and focus, line, length and balance. Despite its power, it’s feline in its balance, promising a 20+ year future. Its length impresses more each time. Glorious wine… drink to 2039."

- James Halliday (The Weekend Australian Magazine)

2019 Place of Changing Winds Clos de la Connerie Late Bottling

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.

2019 Place of Changing Winds Between Two Mountains Pinot Noir

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.

2019 Place of Changing Winds Tradition

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.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
