The nose is boisterous with juicy red raspberry, summery cherry lusciousness and heady charred French oak. The brightly focussed palate is pure and a wash with juicy red currant, dried inca berries, cherries, briary blackberries and herbaceous nuance. The ultra-fine structure offers seamless tannin, supported by a lively acid backbone that will see this wine age gracefully at least for a decade. Would pair well with grilled Atlantic Salmon or eggplant lasagne.
Clyde Park Vineyard was established in 1979 when the varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were planted on the property.Further plantings since have increased the vineyard to 35 acres, expanding the original Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and adding Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. In all we have 7 clones of Pinot Noir, 6 clones of Chardonnay, 2 clones of Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc and a sole clone of Pinot Gris.
The Jongebloed family have owned Clyde Park since 1996 and have concentrated on developing premium quality cool climate wines, which today are sold across Australia and recently have begun to export.They are proud to be a James Halliday 5 star rated vineyard for a number of years, and their wines have won numerous awards.
