Englishman Henry Pike immigrated to South Australia in 1878 aboard the HMS Oakland. He settled in the small town of Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills and in 1886 established the family brewing business called H. Pike & Co. This name became well known throughout South Australia for its quality beer, soft drink and tonic ale, and the company used the English Pike fish on the label, which remains to this day - a symbol of Pikes' long heritage. 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 considerably cooler and the soils are also quite unique to the rest of the region. These attributes impart distinctive flavours and aromas to the wines from the Polish Hill River area.

 

The 'Pike Riesling' displays a brilliant pale green colour. It is spotlessly clean and a restrained, displaying delicately perfumed citrus blossom and subtle notes of bathpowder, green apple and slate. On the palate , this wine is crisp, fresh and dry, loaded with zesty lemon and grapefruit flavours wrapped around a spine of crunchy, mineral acidity.

 

"Fresh, concentrated lime fruit with a candied lemon zest. Passion fruit seeds give a zesty acidity and long finish." - IWC 2017
