Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red – almost black

Aroma

Ripe blueberry and black cherry fruit with dark chocolate/mocha and some black olive notes as well. A nice little touch of charry French oak in the background mix too.

Palate

Medium bodied with soft, ripe dark fruits and fine dry tannins giving length and structure to the wine.

Cellaring

A really nice example of medium bodied Clare Valley Shiraz. No problem to enjoy this wine in its youth, but as usual 4-7+ years will see some development occur in the wine and will more than repay those who like some bottle aged characters in their reds.

Food Matching

Works well with soft, ripe cheeses.

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.
