Ned Goodwin MW - Halliday Wine Companion "This is a delicious first cab from the rank in a hierarchy of pinot. Classy and the equal, on many levels, of Pike & Joyce's single clonal expressions. Lifted scents of fecund strawberry, poached rhubarb and griotte, that most burgundian accent seldom found in pinot on these shores. The palate is expansive, bound to a gentle tannic twine. Just a bit thin. But that is drawing needles from the proverbial. An impressive, open-fronted wine offering great satisfaction."

Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion "Juicy fruit with a high liveliness quotient, this young Adelaide Hills pinot noir will undoubtedly be enjoyed sooner rather than later. Boasts a fine, linear tannin structure, the perfect launch pad for a volley of ripe red berries, plums, leafy dried herbs and earth. Clean and fresh but also with depth, which will become more apparent with age." (2021 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Medium depth bright red-purple colour; sweet raspberry to red cherry aromas, a hint of sarsaparilla, the palate light-bodied and straightforward, with a short carry and modest depth. A pleasant lighter, simpler style of pinot and the price is right." (2021 vintage)

Australian & New Zealand Boutique Wine Show "Light-bodied. Elegant and refined. Lovely poise. Fine." (2021 vintage)

Australian & New Zealand Boutique Wine Show "Bright lifted vibrant. Juicy fruit clear/clean and precise." (2021 vintage)

Tony Love, Halliday Wine Companion "All estate-grown fruit, with 5 clones in play. Wild fermented in more than 40 small parcels, with varying vinification including whole bunches, whole berries and a range of maceration times. All matured in 25% new barriques for 8 months. We get darker cherry fruit notes, concentration and integrated secondary characters, peppery spice and well-woven wood. Everything is in place, but it wants for just a little more edge." (2020 vintage)

This is a partnership between the Pike family (of Clare Valley fame) and the Joyce family, related to Andrew Pike’s wife, Cathy.

The winery is situated in Lenswood, which is a subregion of the Adelaide Hills. The Adelaide Hills region is well-known for its cool climate, high-altitude vineyards, and diverse range of premium cool-climate wines.

The Joyce family have been orchardists at Lenswood for over 100 years and also have extensive operations in the Riverland. Together with Andrew they have established this vineyard site, which was previously apple and pear orchards, is characterized by steep North and East facing slopes and possesses fantastic gravelly clay and loam soils which are ideally suited to the classic cool climate varieties that have been planted – Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. to sauvignon blanc (5.9ha), pinot noir (5.73ha), pinot gris (3.22ha), chardonnay (3.18ha) and semillon (0.47ha). The wines are made at the Pikes’ Clare Valley winery and exported around the world.

The vineyard is all hand pruned and handpicked with the fruit being chilled overnight in the Joyce cool rooms. Traditional old world techniques as well as modern Australian winemaking are incorporated to produce a style which reflects the variety and region."

Pike & Joyce owns and operates vineyards covering around 32 hectares in the Lenswood area of Adelaide Hills. The vineyards are planted at varying altitudes, providing an excellent opportunity to grow a variety of grape varieties that thrive in the cool climate.

Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, now produced in wine regions all over the world, including western Germany, northern Italy, Chile, South Africa, Australia and, perhaps most notably, California, Oregon and New Zealand.

The essence of Pinot Noir wine is its aroma of strawberry and cherry (fresh red cherries in lighter wines and stewed black cherries in weightier examples), underpinned in the most complex examples by hints of forest floor. Well-built Pinot Noirs, particularly from warmer harvests, also exhibit notes of leather and violets, sometimes approaching the flavor spectrum of Syrah.

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Medium depth red with faint purple and brick-red tints; the bouquet is reserved and sweet-cherry lifted, with sweet basil-like herbal hints. The wine is light-medium bodied and lean, but nicely balanced and very quaffable. Attractive flavour and freshness, backed by a little firmness from tannins, wholly appropriate." (2021 vintage)

Mike Bennie, Halliday Wine Companion "This feels fun. A juicy, vivacious and slurpy red with quiet complexity. Scents of raspberry, cherry cola, anise, mint and eucalyptus. Sloshes around the palate nicely, almost jelly in texture with cool acidity underlying. Flavours roll around with more of the raspberry, cherry and anise with a dash of white pepper, too. A jolly good time to be had. Could also handle a light chill."

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Good deep colour with a rich ripe blackberry aroma, crushed black pepper and quite aromatic. Good focus, intensity and style, a fruit-driven wine with excellent varietal character in a cooler-grown mode. Great value for money."

Stuart Knox, The Real Review "Vibrant rich ruby red in the glass. Nose fills with blueberry, mocha, and anise aromatics. Rich and textured with ripe black fruits and spice layers. A meaty undertone ensures interest .........."

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Tempranillo has such robust tannins that even a small inclusion can impact the experience in the mouth – for better or worse, depending on your personal proclivities, for or against tempranillo. In this case, the wine is jubey and sweet, with a seam of steel-shaving tannins that shape the flavours. Decent early drinking." (2019 vintage)

Pikes is a prestigious winery in South Australia's Clare Valley, established in 1984 by Neil and Andrew Pike, whose viticultural roots go back to the late 1800s. Situated in the picturesque Clare Valley, the Estate is comprised of approximately 100 hectares of rolling slopes in Polish Hill River, an eastern sub-region of the Clare Valley.
Known for its cool climate and diverse grape varieties, Pikes showcases premium wines with distinct characters and flavors due to the unique terroir and altitude.

After an almost 20-year career with Penfolds Wines and Southcorp Wine Group, Andrew joined Pikes on a full-time basis in 1998 to oversee viticultural operations and manage the growing family business.

Pikes is particularly renowned for its high-quality Riesling and other cool-climate wines, praised for vibrant acidity, citrus flavors, and exceptional aging potential. Whilst they are best known for world-class Riesling, they have been growing Shiraz and Cabernet for 35 years and have 20 different grape varieties planted on their estate, producing a wide range of wine styles to suit all tastes.

Pikes pride themselves on producing quality handcrafted wines, that reflect vintage, variety, and region. The Pike family has been producing quality wine, beer, and aerated waters in South Australia since 1886 it is a family tradition of which they should be very proud.

Over the years, Pikes has garnered numerous awards, establishing itself as a top producer in the Clare Valley, and gaining recognition both nationally and internationally for their excellent and consistent wines.

Tempranillo is a red grape variety grown throughout Spain and Portugal and to a lesser degree in other parts of the world.

Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot "...this is a cracker. Opaque maroon in colour, we have aromas of plums, chocolate, truffles, fleshy notes, bergamot and coffee grinds. Still very young and it really does need time. The palate is seductive and seamless with very fine tannins and juicy acidity. I’d be putting this aside for the next three to four years and then enjoying it over the following decade, over which period it will surely continue to improve."

Mike Bennie, Halliday Wine Companion "Beautiful aromatics starring blueberry, violet floral lift, a sniff of cassis, dried rosemary and dark chocolate. Supple on the palate with lush cassis and plum fruit characters squished through a sheath of light, suede tannin and gently spiked with dried herb and black peppery spice. Flavours linger with bright, cassis fruit and more of the spice, gently. Satisfying expression, refined, restrained, but vibrant. It's very good."

Stuart Knox, The Real Review "Bright ruby and purple tones in the glass. Plums and woody herbal aromatics. Medium bodied with supple plum fruit that glides through the core while hints of graphite and black olive tapenade linger underneath. Tannins are finely wrought through the length and the whole package is subtle and supple to the end."

Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot "I’ve got a bit of an apology to make to the Clare Valley – it has taken me a while to come around to the local Cabernet Sauvignon – too long. Yes these can be brooding monsters in tough vintages but when they are on song, they are so very good, and up there with the best shiraz from the region. This version is a powerhouse style that never loses its way with tremendous balance that will help it to drink well over the medium term. Bright deep ruby, it opens with deliciously pure cassis fruits with a strong Clare undertow of warm slate beautifully integrated with high quality oak. Great energy follows on the palate which is more in a mid-weight style before dense yet fine mouth-coating tannins take over to deliver a long and strong finish. Exceptional and will drink well for some time to come." (2020 vintage)

Ken Gargett, Tasting Book Ken Gargett "Dark magenta, the nose is alluring mix of licorice, black olives cassis, tobacca leaf, chocolate and coffee beans. The palate moves more to a sour cherry note. Very good grip here. Savoury in style, this is well structured with fine but firm tannis, and excellent lenght. The finish offers aniseed, five spice notes and more cassis." (2020 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Sandalwood, cocoa, plum and blackberry compote. In the mouth the wine is concentrated and dense, with a heated lift through the finish. This is a full wine, with weight and gravitas... chocolatey, spicy and moving to viscous. This will go very well in time, but for now, it remains a little frisky (and very fresh)." (2020 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Deep red/purple hue, with a strong crushed gumleaf aroma, tomato-leafy too, and the palate echoes this with an edgy and quite astringent taste, which includes some bitterness. This is raw, callow and strident, and demands cellaring." (2020 vintage)

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion "Still in an awkward youthful stage, with the tannins appearing a touch too raspy and the palate not entirely harmonious. Never fear. It will get its act together. It already has all the elements in place: the mulberries, the cassis and currants, the baking spices and freshly rolled tobacco and sprinkling of herbs. It's medium bodied and refreshing but needs to go back into the cellar for a few more years. No doubt it will change the outcome. Cellar door only." (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "A bold and ripe red-plum and redcurrant nose with a herbal edge and leafy tones. Medium-bodied, bright and juicy with red-plum and redcurrant flavors." (2019 vintage)

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world. It is now the key grape variety in many first-rate New World wine regions, most notably Napa Valley, Coonawarra and Maipo Valley. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood.

Yes these can be brooding monsters in tough vintages but when they are on song, they are so very good, and up there with the best shiraz from the region. This version is a powerhouse style that never loses its way with tremendous balance that will help it to drink well over the medium term. Bright deep ruby, it opens with deliciously pure cassis fruits with a strong Clare undertow of warm slate beautifully integrated with high quality oak. Great energy follows on the palate which is more in a mid-weight style before dense yet fine mouth-coating tannins take over to deliver a long and strong finish. Exceptional and will drink well for some time to come." (2020 vintage)

Ken Gargett, Tasting Book Ken Gargett "Dark magenta, the nose is alluring mix of licorice, black olives cassis, tobacca leaf, chocolate and coffee beans. The palate moves more to a sour cherry note. Very good grip here. Savoury in style, this is well structured with fine but firm tannis, and excellent lenght. The finish offers aniseed, five spice notes and more cassis." (2020 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Sandalwood, cocoa, plum and blackberry compote. In the mouth the wine is concentrated and dense, with a heated lift through the finish. This is a full wine, with weight and gravitas... chocolatey, spicy and moving to viscous. This will go very well in time, but for now, it remains a little frisky (and very fresh)." (2020 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Deep red/purple hue, with a strong crushed gumleaf aroma, tomato-leafy too, and the palate echoes this with an edgy and quite astringent taste, which includes some bitterness. This is raw, callow and strident, and demands cellaring." (2020 vintage)

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion "Still in an awkward youthful stage, with the tannins appearing a touch too raspy and the palate not entirely harmonious. Never fear. It will get its act together. It already has all the elements in place: the mulberries, the cassis and currants, the baking spices and freshly rolled tobacco and sprinkling of herbs. It's medium bodied and refreshing but needs to go back into the cellar for a few more years. No doubt it will change the outcome. Cellar door only." (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "A bold and ripe red-plum and redcurrant nose with a herbal edge and leafy tones. Medium-bodied, bright and juicy with red-plum and redcurrant flavors." (2019 vintage)

Over the years, Pikes has garnered numerous awards, establishing itself as a top producer in the Clare Valley, and gaining recognition both nationally and internationally for their excellent and consistent wines.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world. It is now the key grape variety in many first-rate New World wine regions, most notably Napa Valley, Coonawarra and Maipo Valley. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood.
