Overview

Another top flight Pikes Dogwalk, offering the rich aromas and flavours of the vineyard with a bit of backbone on the palate. Good drink now for such a young wine, but will take 4-8 years cellaring without any problems at all.

Expert Reviews

A savoury, earthy Clare Valley cabernet blend, The Dogwalk is a harmonious young wine that combines blackcurrant and mulberry-like fruit with hefty notes in an easy-drinking style with medium body, good concentration and attractive softness, supported by drying tannins. Rating 4.5 Stars - Ralph Kyte-Powell, Age (22/MAR/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Attractive aromas of ripe blackcurrant and black cherries, with a touch of "charry" french oak complimenting the concentrated fruit characters. Also some dark chocolate and violet/leafy note showing. Typical Dogwalk.

Palate

Rich flavours of ripe, dark fruits and chocolate are the features here with fine, dry tannins, subtle oak and balanced acidity adding length and structure to the finish.

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.
