Brilliant wines, impeccably cellared and at the same price as current releases are very rare. We have five wines from one of Australia’s best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers, Clyde Park. All wines have been aged at the estate and are just entering their long drinking window. This release highlights the ability of these wines to age, the joys of bottle age complexity and that there is still a long life ahead for all of them! There is no doubt that Clyde Park are at the very pinnacle of Australian wine and offer tremendous value, relative to their peers.

 

2019 Clyde Park Chardonnay

The extra year of bottle age has added some more weight and an extra dimension of complexity. Full bodied and rich with citrus, cream, preserved lemon, yellow peach, wood spice and crushed ANZAC biscuit. Fleshy and round, with terrific clarity of fruit and mineral cut. Incredible complexity for a Chardonnay at this price and an absolute bargain.

 

2017 Clyde Park Block B3 Chardonnay

Incredible bouquet, as powerful as it is complex. Yellow peach, fresh hay, cashew, nougat, white flowers and honeysuckle. To this you could add many more as it is so multifaceted and evolves incredibly in just a short time in the glass. Tightly wound and dense, a very rare combination in Australian Chardonnay. Butter, struck match, lime, grapefruit and yellow peach. Fleshy and tense, impeccably balanced and with immense carry. One of the great Australian Chardonnays. Classic Clyde Park, a statement wine of genuine grandeur, opulence and refinement.

 

2017 Clyde Park Block F Pinot Noir

The very definition of Pinot Noir, and the prettiest of the Clyde Park stable. But like all great pinot, pretty doesn’t mean light, or lacking in weight. In this case at least the opposite is true. Asian spices are woven with crushed mixed berries, red blue and black. Some cinnamon and cocoa powder creeps through too, and a petrichor/cured meat complexity that is positively haunting. The detail here is amazing with high toned flavours and spice, built on a base of deep fruits and savoury complexity. Slippery textured with frim tannins and a crescendo crashing fruit and spice. A truly remarkable wine.

 

2016 Clyde Park Block B2 Pinot Noir

This would bring a tear to the eye of any wine grower in Gevrey-Chambertin. Expressive with clove, bay and aniseed spice, blackberry, mulberry, plum and mixed red fruits. Muscular and angular with sinued flesh stretched taught across the frame. Intense palate, cut through with herbs, spices, tobacco, Serrano and summer fruits. Firm. The most exotic of the pinots and arguably the most singular.

 

2016 Clyde Park Block D Pinot Noir

The most generous of the pinots and despite the broad shoulders, is more approachable now. A cuddly nose of sweet red fruits, pastille black fruits, cocoa powder, nutmeg, cherry, raspberry and plum. Broad and fleshy on the palate with some oak spice, five spice and sweet fruits. The tannins are quite firm, but the fruit is so rich and flavoursome. Very much a wine for autumn and winter. Sweet spot right now.
