Expert Reviews

"Raspberry, lightly minty aromas; fresh, clean and lively in the mouth with sturdy upright structure and some firmness from tannin."

Rating 88 - Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald (24/JUL/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red

Aroma

Attractive aromas of blackcurrant /dark cherries and chocolate, with a just a touch of “charry” French oak complimenting the quite perfumed fruit characters.

Palate

A medium to full bodied palate of ripe, dark cherry and blackcurrant that integrates nicely with the fine tannins, subtle oak and balanced acidity.

Cellaring Potential

A lovely wine from an excellent red vintage in Clare. Good to drink now for such a young wine, but will take 5-10 years cellaring without any problems at all. Rare roasted lamb would be an ideal partner. Great value red!

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.
