Andy's Tasting Notes

A benchmark dry Riesling with pristine, crisp zesty fruit and an enticing floral and aromatically attractive personality. Always develops lots of nuances with extra bottle age. A great Clare Valley Riesling.

Price per bottle £16.50

Producer Info

The Pikes story began when Henry Pike emigrated from Dorset to South Australia in 1878 and established a family brewing business, Pikes Dorset Brewery in the Adelaide Hills. Many years later his great-grandson Edgar followed in his footsteps, setting up a wine business, which in 1984 became Pikes Wines, with Edgar’s sons Neil (winemaker) and Andrew (viticulturist) at the helm. Situated in the verdant Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare Valley, the estate is renowned for its aromatic, cool-climate Clare Valley Riesling with the iconic Pike fish label.

Pikes practise complete recycling of all winery waste water and solid waste products as well as sustainable management of their vineyards and surrounding property.
