Product Description

This was the wine previously labelled as 'Graillot'. The 2018 is the first release that we have made ourselves at Place of Changing Winds. 

While both the No. 1 and No. 2 wines come from the same, three-hectare plot of vines, this bottling is comprised of two ferments that underwent a longer maceration (around 30 days). Apart from this, the wine was made the same way: 100% whole-bunch, natural fermentation, large format oak, etc.

Pure, layered and dangerously easy to consume, you can expect a smoothly textured wine with blackcurrant fruit, violet florals, hints of graphite (very typical of these soils) and super-fine tannins. 

Organic vineyard practice. 12.5% alc/vol. DIAM 10 closure.

"This has come along nicely over the past few months. It's low-ish in alcohol but it packs a punch; it's certainly not light on for flavour. It's peppery and twiggy, a little vegetal, a lot meaty. There's a core of cherry and a spray of florals. When you first open it things seem just a little tannic for their own good, but as it breathes it falls closer to balance. Indeed it's the kind of wine where your impression keeps shifting. At the tasting bench I was in two minds; at the dinner table I was far more convinced." 92+ points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
