Expert Reviews

The east side of the Clare Valley is the Polish Hill River district that could easily satisfy the criteria for registration as a subregion. There is a greater focus, coupled with a finer structure, that allows the full expression of the varietal fruit to come through on the light to medium-bodied foundation. Rating 93 - Drink by 2025 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red.

Aroma

Ripe plum and black cherry fruit with hints of mocha, graphite and some spicy notes as well. A nice little touch of charry French oak in the background mix.

Palate

Medium bodied with the ripe, dark fruits to the fore with balanced acidity and savoury tannins giving length and structure to the wine.

Cellaring

Clare Valley Shiraz often flies under the radar, but the region produces excellent wines year in year out that offer good drinking and the ability to age slowly and gracefully. Drink now and the next 7 -10 years.

Food Matching

Try this with your favourite piece of beef.

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.
