Overview

The richness and softness of the Shiraz (90%) is complimented by the slightly rustic tannins of the Tempranillo (10%). Drink now and over the next 3-5 years. It works perfectly well with anything from pizza, to tacos, to a humble lamb chop cooked on the BBQ. Enjoy.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Medium deep Red

Aroma

Lifted, spiced cherry and blueberry fruit with some choc/mint notes overlay a gentle earthiness adding another dimension. The French oak is very much in the background not playing a major role here.

Palate

Bright, juicy and very approachable, the blueberry and chocolate flavours are nicely tempered by some savoury tannins and well-balanced acidity. Quite long and satisfying.

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.
