The Pike Family patriach, Henry Pike, emigrated from Dorset to South Australia in 1878 aboard the HMS Oakland. He settled in the small town of Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills and in 1886 established a family business called Pikes Dorset Brewery. Subsequently this business became known as H. Pike & Co. and the Pikes name became known throughout South Australia for its quality beer, ales, soft drinks and cordials and its famous Tonic Ale. From the outset, Henry Pike used the striking English Pike fish on all his beer labels and we have continued that tradition on all our current products – a symbol of Pikes long heritage, now spanning three centuries.

Winery Tasting Notes
Medium density, bright red
A touch of blackcurrant followed by typical dark cherry, and a hint of clove.
Medium bodied wine, with a soft and subtle middle palate. Dark cherry continues through from the aroma. This wine is finished with dusty tannins, and a nice pop of acid.
A fabulous food wine. Can pair with many dishes, however great with salami wood fired pizza or Penne Amatriciana.
It will age well in the medium term, 3-5 years.
