New release Syrah and Marsanne from Place of Changing Winds, Heathcote.
Pack contains 3 bottles each of the following:
This wine is a product of a long running collab with Alain and Maxime Graillot, initially made by Luke Lambert, and is where Rob Walters began his wine producing journey. Today it’s the team at Place of Changing Winds who make the wine. There’s an amazing elegance to the palate, which is soft and smooth, without being jammy. It’s a ripe, luxurious wine showing great promise, with a hint of meat and pepper savouriness alongside the ripe fruit. There’s a sleek ripe side to the wine but also some good definition and focus. Very fine, doing a really difficult job of balancing ripeness and freshness really well. 94 points, Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak
The first Marsanne from Place of Changing Winds and it’s an intriguing, complex and relatively full-bodied wine that will benefit from cellaring. For now, do not be scared to give it a decant as it’s still tightly wound. It’s smoky, with plenty of struck match and solids influence as well as pear, melon and honey notes lurking in the background (which become more prominent with air).
