Wine Tasting at Pikes Wines

Pikes Wines, in the Clare Valley, embodies a tradition of winemaking excellence, combining both modern and traditional techniques to craft wines of finesse and style. Established with a philosophy to produce wines that reflect the variety, the vintage conditions, and the unique terroir of their Polish Hill River Estate, Pikes Wines is dedicated to expressing the character and personality of each vineyard block. With a range that includes Riesling, Sangiovese, Grenache, and a host of other varietals, Pikes Wines showcases the diversity and quality of the Clare Valley. Their commitment to minimal intervention during the vinification process ensures that each wine is a true representation of its origin, marked by the passion invested in both vineyard management and winemaking.

At the heart of Pikes Wines' winemaking philosophy is the use of pure yeast cultures for delicate whites and wild yeast ferments for select reds to build complexity. This approach, coupled with extended skin contact for varieties like Grenache and Sangiovese, and careful maturation in high-quality French oak barrels, allows Pikes Wines to produce wines that are not only rich in flavour and tannin but also balanced and structured. The winery's dedication to crafting wines that celebrate the fruit's integrity is evident in their meticulous attention to detail at every stage of production, from vineyard to bottle.
