Expert Reviews

Bargain of the Week A tasty, good-value shiraz greche mourvedre tempranillo blend from the Clare Valley. Rich fruit nose, plenty of flavour; a firm thread of tannin provides structure. Best during the next year or two.

Huon Hooke Good Living - SMH 3 Mar-09

This is not the new haircut the Pikes boys have taken a shine to; rather the third vintage of their unique red blend – of shiraz, mourvedre, tempranillo and Greche. It’s uncomplicated, supple and easy to like, with dark berry flavours and restrained oak and tannins. A pretty good quaffer… Peter Forrestal Quaff 2009 Jan-09

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.
