Englishman Henry Pike emigrated to South Australia in 1878 and established a family brewing business. His great grandson, Edgar, followed in his footsteps and established a wine business. Edgar's sons Neil and Andrew now run Pikes Wines (established in 1984), which is situated in the Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare Valley. Pikes Winery was awarded a 5 star rating in James Halliday's Wine Companion 2009 edition
Colour: pale green colour Aroma: Fresh, zesty aromas of citrus, tropical fruit and a hint of musky perfume displayed. Palate: Crisp, bright and fresh with the zingy acidity balancing the attractive core of fruit salad flavours very nicely.
:There is a lot happening on the nose with tropical fruits, lemon and lime very much to the fore. The palate feels sweet a lush mix of flavours the richness underpinned and nicely balanced by a racy freshness. Derek Smedley MW 89 points
