Place of Changing Winds Heathcote Syrah 2019
The wine speaks for itself--it's bright and juicy with good depth and excellent freshness. Jamie Goode's note captures it well enough. Neither this Syrah nor the 2019 Marsanne was fined or filtered, and SO? was kept to a minimum.
"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
