The property was established in 1979 and further planted in 1996, but the core premium wines are made from their Burgundian varieties. All the fruit is 100% estate grown, and is farmed on small blocks with varying elevations and soil types, giving a unique palate to work with in the final composition of the wines. Hailing from the Bannockburn wine region north of Geelong in Victoria, Clyde Park specialises in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from their 13 hectares of cool climate vineyards. The vineyards are located on the hillsides above the Moorabool River, offering cool climate influence for the grape growing.

Lighter in colour and body than the '16, purely a reflection of a very different vintage. Mind you, the colour is very good, the bouquet and palate speaking volumes for the cool vintage with the length, complexity and intensity of the spicy red and black fruits. Spice, pepper and licorice are the usual flavours in cool grown shiraz, and they're here.

Estate-grown shiraz from Clyde Park at Bannockburn in the Geelong region. This is a beauty. A cool climate beauty. It’s all spice and nuts, black/red cherries and smoky oak, everything pulling as a team, everything drawing you in. Both black and white pepper notes get an airing, as does a run of ultra-fine tannin. Is there a touch of spritz here? It almost feels as though there is, though it in no way detracts. It’s a gorgeous wine. Alcohol: 13%; Price: $40; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019 - 2032+; Rated: 94+ Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
Deep, bright purple/red colour. The aromas are fresh and floral, fruit-driven and bright, a theme which continues on the palate. Subtle spice. It's medium to full-bodied and tightly-structured, with a little firmness, excellent richness and considerable overall elegance. The fruit is stylish and does most of the talking. A top shiraz from this vineyard. Drink: 2019 to 2032; Price: $40.00; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 93 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
