Pikes Clare Valley Riesling 2019



94 pts James Halliday Aug 2020

Traditional by all means as it winds its way across the palate in typical Pikes style, offering as much today as it will in 5+ years time. It has the full range of riesling flavour at a minimal alcohol level.

91 pts James Suckling Aug 2020

Super fresh and gently flinty riesling that has bright lemon and crushed-stone notes on offer with a soft, drinkable palate. Salty, minerally and lemony finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Winemaker Notes

Color: Brilliant pale green.Aroma: Fragrant aromas of kaffir lime, lemon and talc. Maybe some subtle feijoa aromas too. It displays the clarity and purity of dry Clare Valley Riesling from an excellent vintage.

Palate: Fresh, bright and delicate, the citrus fruit provides up front flavor while the mouth-watering spine of acidity elevates the wine to a clean, dry crescendo. Delicious.

This is the 35th release of this much-loved wine. The “Trad” is always a lovely drink upon release, but 5 -7 years in the cellar will rewardthose who like a little bottle age. Drink with any seafood really, but it’s pairing with fresh shucked SA oysters is hard to top.
