Delectably fine wine and magnificent views are what you can expect from the Clyde Park vineyard. Its location on the truly unique hills surrounding the Moorabool River, thirty kilometres north of Geelong, places Clyde Park at the forefront of cool-climate viticulture.
The history of Clyde Park and the Bannockburn region dates back to the 1800s when the area was first explored. The site was initially developed around 1837 by a group known as the Clyde Company. It was thought that these partners had come from the lowlands of Scotland, not far from the Clyde River. Their close proximity to the river was where the name, The Clyde Company, originated from. This group of settlers thus named the land and its surrounds, Clyde Park.
Viticulturally, the site produces low yields of oenologically superb fruit. The winemaking at Clyde Park starts in the vineyard, which is meticulously maintained by a small, but dedicated team. Here, sustainable practices such as straw mulching for water conservation, intensive mid row cropping and compost application are considered integral for improving soil structure, vine health and fruit quality. The estate-grown fruit is all hand harvested and great care is taken in the adjacent winery to craft wines of distinct regionality and varietal expression.
Clyde Park has won many accolades, most recently Best Shiraz in the 2018 National Wine Show of Australia and back to back trophies for Best Geelong Entry in the Australian Pinot Noir Challenge. In addition to this, Clyde Park’s Block F College Pinot Noir received 97 points from James Halliday, which is no surprise, as Clyde Park was rated as a 5-red Star winery in the 2020 Halliday Wine Companion.

⇐ 2019 Pinot Gris
Sourced from a pinot gris vine planted in 1996, this food-friendly, aromatic wine was fermented partly on skins with indigenous yeasts to exemplify the varieties’ textural
attributes. Figs and nashi pears dominate the aroma while the palate
is laden with spiced pear. Delivered with sumptuous texture and bright natural acidity.
⇐ 2017 Pinot Noir
This wine reflects the diverse complexity of the site’s varying aspects and soil types. This pinot noir exhibits power and presence on the palate, while the bouquet comprises aromas of lifted rose petal and red fruits, as well as spice, savoury elements and mineral undertones.
⇐ 2017 Block D Pinot Noir
Planted in 1998, Block D is situated on a steep south-facing slope consisting of dark-brown volcanic clay loams at its top and black clay loams towards its bottom. Taken from the middle section of this low-yielding block, this wine was fermented with 25 per cent whole-bunch grapes and matured for nine months with 20 per cent new French oak.
⇐ 2017 Block F Pinot Noir
First planted in 1986 and again in 1988, Block F is a small 0.7-hectare block planted high on a gentle north-facing slope that is rich in basalt and black clay. This wine was fermented with 20 per cent whole-bunch grapes and matured for nine months with 25 per cent new French oak. This elegant wine has a brilliant purity of fruit, a hint of five-spice, and masculine power.
