The Clyde Park Locale Pinot Noir is a wine comprised of fruit grown on selected vineyards in the Geelong region. It's a wine which is designed to be immediate delicious as well as tell the story of the region's vintage each year. A little new oak and a portion of whole bunch ferment sees this wine pick up a little more complexity than your average $25 Pinot Noir without ever compromising the sheer drinking pleasure of the wine upon release. The 2015 release was dubbed "Excellent drinking." by Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh added "In short, it delivers the goods." in his affable review. For the Pinot Noir fans, this is the perfect silky, supple red which can be enjoyed every day of the week.
What it Tastes Like
"Easy-drinking style with a jubey, almost honeyed sweetness to the aromatics, but then lovely curls of fresh, frisky, cherried flavour on the palate. Indeed it finishes savoury. Excellent drinking." - Campbell Mattinson (Australian Wine Companion)

Excellent drinking." - Campbell Mattinson (Australian Wine Companion) 91 points "Juicy spiced cherry, a little earthiness, almost a liquorice richness. Medium bodied, plump fruit and savoury flavour, fine grained tannin, and an ample spicy/sappy finish. In short, it delivers the goods." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

About the Producer
Clyde Park’s gorgeous vineyard is one of the finest jewels in the crown of Geelong wine. Their specialities are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with individual bottlings from different blocks across the vineyard being their signature releases. Their wines are powerful, voluptuous and speak of one of Victoria’s greatest vineyard sites.
This Victorian region rocks some very serious wines. Pinot Noir from this area, depending on who you talk too, is arguably the best in the country. Phenomenal output for the size of it. The wines from this area are idiosyncratic and have an earthy, sensual quality. Burgundian varieties, Syrah, hell, even Pinot Gris does exceptionally well here. To be honest, it’s very hard to go wrong when buying from Geelong.
No variety captures the hearts and minds of the wine lover quite like Pinot Noir. It’s the unicorn of many a winemaker. Notoriously fickle to grow, this delicate red variety can deliver a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas, from the bright and floral to the moody and mysterious and everything in between. The cooler regions of Australia are where Pinot Noir is most at home. Look to Tasmania and Victoria for the best examples, with some quality wines beginning to show from the Great Southern and from the cooler parts of NSW. Falling in love with Pinot Noir can be a life long affair, beware the charms of this most enchanting of grapes.
