Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Medium density, bright red.

Aroma

Typically dark cherry/blueberry fruit and just a hint of dried herbs. Some subtle oak aromas deliver an enticing amalgam of aromas.

Palate

Again this is absolutely typical of this noble Tuscan variety. Medium weight cherry and blueberry fruit – quite ‘juicy’, nicely balanced by ‘savoury’ tannins and good acid that forms a structure that could only point towards the Sangiovese grape.

Food Matching

A variety that really does need food to show its best. Anything from pizza and pasta to grilled meats will work.

Cellaring Potential

No problem to keep for 3-5 years in the cellar.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Pikes Vintners is an iconic family owned and operated winery set amongst the hills and valleys of South Australia's beautiful Clare Valley.

Established in 1984 the winery and vineyards are situated in the historic and picturesque Polish Hill River sub region on the eastern side of the Clare Valley. The climate in this area is cooler and the soils are quite different compared to the rest of the region, imparting distinctive flavours and aromas to the wines.

Pikes is best known for its world class Riesling, but is becoming increasingly recognized for high quality, elegant red wines and their ever popular Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend. Pikes have also been a leader in planting new and alternative varieties to the district including Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio and Viognier. Pikes also produces Pikes Oakbank- a sparkling Pilsener style beer.

The distinctive English Pike fish appears on all Pikes products.
