2019 Clyde Park Estate Pinot Noir

Geelong, VIC

Complex, earthy, savoury Pinot from a modern Geelong star producer.




About The Wine

The 2019 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. This is an excellent release: finely detailed and impeccably balanced.

Clyde Park is one of the top examples of Geelong Pinot Noir. This wine drinks very well now and will mature wonderfully over the next 5+ years.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"A blend of all five blocks/clones, wild-fermented with 35% whole bunches, matured for 9 months in fruit (30% new). Crystal, clear crimson; the fragrant and expressive bouquet offers red cherry/berry fruits with spice and forest floor aromas. A vibrant palate with red fruits to the fore, spice and superfine tannins. Made by Robin Brockett." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"This is a well-powered pinot noir, both savoury and fruit-driven, with roasted nut, herb and twig notes washed thoroughly through red cherry and plum-like fruit. It’s tangy but not too much so, spicy in an integrated way, dry through the finish and well structured. There was a game-like note when I first opened it but it eased away to reveal pure fruit and spice. Above average quality here." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

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 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).
