About The Wine

The 2017 Clyde Park Pinot Noir is the latest edition of this iconic estate grown wine.

The first vines to propagate Clyde Park were planted by Gary Farr, one of the winemaking pioneers of the region, in 1979. This wine combines the fruit yielded from the original plantings with fruit from younger vines growing on the estate.

Each year this wine serves as a snapshot of the season on this stunning vineyard. The 2017 is an excellent release: finely detailed and impeccably balanced.

With 96 points from James Halliday this is a top release of this benchmark example of Geelong Pinot Noir.

Halliday Wine Companion

"From all five blocks/seven clones of the estate vineyard, 25% whole-bunch pressed and open-fermented. This is the cat's whiskers, making you itch to taste the individual block wines. Deep, bright crimson-purple, its flavours are strung along a high tensile wire of foresty notes ex whole bunches, dripping satsuma plum and strawberry, curtailed and balanced by savoury notes and fine tannins on the finish." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
