Pinot Noir is best known for the light- to medium-bodied reds of regions such as Burgundy and Central Otago (and, in Australia, Tasmania and Adelaide Hills). It also forms part of the classic Champagne blend and is a key contributor to many of the best sparklings. Pinot makes excellent rosés too, with the variety’s delicate charms perfectly suiting this lighter style.
Red and black fruits burst from the glass and combine with florals, dried herb, spice, and earthy forest-floor aromas to create an inviting nose. On the palate, juicy red fruits meld with bramble, mocha and earth, whilst fresh acidity provides verve and a moreish drinkability to the wine.

Wow! High hopes for this one (as with all Clyde Park releases) and it only takes one sniff to know that they will not be disappointed. So fresh, so fragrant, so pretty, so elegant. At first, it is all a rush of strawberry, raspberry, red cherry, redcurrant … name a red fruit, any red fruit: it’s there. Linger a little though, and notes of spice appear, along with that funky earthy, undergrowth character that marks out good Pinot Noir. To taste, it’s a wine of poise and balance. The same red fruits and funk are there again on the palate, with an incredible intensity that belies its lightness of body. It floats, it glides and, long after the last drop is swallowed, it lingers. Brilliant wine
