"Planting density 14,000 vines per ha. Excellent depth to its crimson hue; the fragrant bouquet has a blend of dark cherry and plum fruit, the intense mouthfeel silky and supple. 33% whole bunch shows its hand, just enough to add complexity. All class… drink to 2032."

"It’s not your average Pinot Noir. It’s varietal but it has a power to it, a force. When I say this I’m referring to its flavour profile; it’s actually a wine of detail and finesse, it’s just that the fruit flavours have a brooding darkness. Boysenberry stirred with anise, black cherry buried in undergrowth, five spice notes licking at sweet herbs. It’s a wine of black humour, if you will. The most impressive thing, as is often the way, is the formation of tannin, and the way it gathers that which has come before and completes it. I want to use the word spark in relation to the tannin; I just do. Perhaps what I mean is that it ignites the aftertaste. In any case I was ambivalent to the Place of Changing Winds project until I tasted this wine, and then in a rush I wanted to know everything and more about it. Gorgeousness in wine is nothing if not inspiring."
