Place of Changing Winds Larderdark Chardonnay 2021

Larderdark is the historical name of the forest that surrounds Place of Changing Winds. In 2021, only a minuscule 564kg of Chardonnay was harvested but with incredible quality worthy of being the first release under this label. The terrible yields were thanks to frost and difficult flowering and the grapes were finally harvested on April 7th, foot stomped and immediately pressed as hard as possible to extract every drop of juice from the thick-skinned, tiny berries. The must was then sent straight to barrel with all its solids and fermentation occurred in a two-year-old Dominique Laurent 228lt and even older barrique.

The wine was racked to a two-year-old Stockinger hogshead (300lt) for eighteen months of aging, with the balance being kept aside in a small topping tank. Malo was allowed to proceed naturally and completed very late. An exceptional wine has resulted from all these details; rich and deep, yet with great acidity and impact. It is complex and powerful in every way.

“This wine is utterly, magnificently, intense and complex; the mouthfeel is exceptional, at first almost fleshy before saliva, aided by acidity, carves a concealed passage and you only realise the wine had disappeared when the glass is indeed empty. Drink to 2038.” 99 points, James Halliday, The Weekend Australian
