Product Details

This wine from Neil Pike is one to add to the wine list! Neil Pike has successfully followed in his father Edgar’s footsteps as a highly awarded winemaker. But he isn’t blessed with Edgar’s skill when it comes to punting on the horses. That’s a good thing for us, because all his talent has gone into this elegant Riesling, named in honour of his dad. It’s a guaranteed winner this spring.

'Pikes The Crafty Punter Riesling, Clare Valley 2015, $15 An ethereal style of young riesling, restrained and shy, with aromas of dried flowers and talcum powder.
The palate is fine and very long, appetizing and savoury with a clean, dry aftertaste.'

    From the vineyard Pikes. Cleverly crafted by Neil pike, this Riesling is a great value, traditional Clare valley style. Nice mouth feel, upfront fruits, and clean acid. Great match with Asian food.

    Gorgeous crisp Riesling with lovely citrus flavours including lime and lemon. This wine has a soft minerality and is a definite must try!

    For those that love crisp savoury wine, this is for you. Excellent dry Riesling for the price.

    It's hard to choose a new Riesling to try, but I'm glad I took a punt on this one. Loved it, my new favourite Riesling.

    This is a special Riesling that offers brilliant flavour at a spectacular price. Elegant, balanced and delicious. A must-try!

    Normally I am a fan of Clare Valley Riesling however I found this wine a little lacking in intensity. It displays good bracing acidity, lifted citrus and mineral notes as you would expect from the region with slight lemon & lime on the palate. All in all a good wine for the price just don't expect too much from it. (2017 Vintage)

    Plenty of flavour and a lingering finish. This Riesling holds quite a bit of lemon zest on the tongue and is very floral on the nose. This is a great introductory wine for anyone wanting to branch out away from more mainstream white wines.

    I couldn't believe how good this wine was for $13, mouth watering acidity delivered with crisp lemon and lime, this wine is perfect with seared scallops and BBQ baby octopus

    A sweet wine with an appley taste. Would be nice with slightly spicy Asian foods.
