Overview

This is the 31st release of this much loved wine. As always, it makes a lovely drink as a youngster, but will definitely improve in the bottle for 6-10 years + for those who like Riesling with a little age. We are yet to discover a better oyster wine than young, dry Clare Valley Riesling.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Brilliant pale green colour.

Aroma

A very attractive aroma dominated by lemon/lime/citrus nuances and maybe some yellow peach. Flecks of bath powder and wet slate are also in the mix.

Palate

Fresh, crisp and dry; the palate is brimming with the lemon/lime/slate characters mentioned above, all nicely balanced by bright acidity that provides much of the drive to the finish.

Food Matching

We are yet to discover a better oyster wine than young, dry Clare Valley Riesling.

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.
