Place of Changing Winds, a remarkable Pinot from the Macedon Ranges

Place of Changing Winds Clos de la Connerie 2017 Macedon Ranges, Australia
This wine is made by Luke Lambert for Robert Walters (an importer – he’s the founder of Bibendum Wine in Australia) who has planted a remarkable vineyard at ultra-high density. He began planting in Bullengarook in 2012, and has added more vines over the years, and the density of planting ranges from 14 000 to 20 000 vines/hectare. This, the second vintage, from vines planted in 2013, is 100% whole bunch Pinot Noir. Good concentration with supple, sleek red and black cherry fruit. Silky texture with a lovely finesse. Has fruit sweetness but also fine-grained structure. Lush and opulent with nice detail, and brooding intensity, showing hints of green and beetroot. 94/100
