Overview

A good wine from a challenging red vintage in Clare. Makes a nice drink now for such a young wine, but will take 3-5 years cellaring easily. Try this wine with Chinese style bbq beef ribs.

Expert Reviews

The flavours are at odds with the moderate alcohol, tasting much riper, with some confit/jammy nuances. James Halliday, Rating 88, 27th July 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red.

Aroma

Attractive aromas of red currant, dark cherry and spice, with just a touch of damp undergrowth. The subtle French oak is as much in the background as the fruit is in the foreground.

Palate

A medium bodied palate displaying fine, silky tannins, balanced acidity and barely perceptible oak. The red and black currant flavours are rich, long and juicy.

Food Matching

Try this wine with Chinese style bbq beef ribs.

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.
