Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red - almost black

Aroma

Super ripe blueberry, plum and blackberry Shiraz fruit with some dark chocolate and licorice notes as well. These are all complimented nicely by a touch of charry French oak

somewhere in the mix.

Palate

The palate is soft and powerful with flavours of blueberry, plum and charry oak overlaying a core of dark chocolate running through the mid palate. Silky tannins on the finish

adds length and a little structure to the ripe, plush fruit.

Cellaring Potential

A lovely example of Clare Valley Shiraz. No problem in enjoying this as a youthful wine, but as usual 4-7+ years will see some development occur in the wine and amply repay those like more complex aged characters in their reds.

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.
