Pikes Wines

Pikes Wines was established in 1984 by brothers Neil and Andrew Pike. Today, Andrew’s son Jamie is leading the business as Managing Director and the winery will be celebrating its 40th birthday in 2024. Located in the Polish Hill River subregion of Clare Valley, Pikes Wines provides visitors with stunning views of rolling hills, vineyards, and ancient gum trees. The historic stone buildings stand as a lingering testament to the original Polish settlers and to the legacy of the Pike family themselves.

Pikes Wines is most known for riesling, however, the winery has grown over twenty different varieties and produces a range of approximately twenty-three different SKUs every year. Riesling, shiraz, cabernet and sangiovese are the four hero varieties that the winery specialises in.

The restaurant on-site is the Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hat winner for five years running.

The tasting room offers complimentary tastings starting with the iconic traditionale riesling, followed by four wines of choice from the extensive wine list.

Tasting Notes

Pike Wines
⇐ 2023 Traditionale Riesling

A crisp, acid driven wine, this riesling is bursting with plenty of fresh lime and other citrus flavours. The balance of palate weight and acid barely-there sweetness creates a seamless and lengthy finish.

Pike Wines
⇐ 2022 Eastside Shiraz

A bright and lively expression of shiraz. A myriad of fresh forest fruits evident, cherry, mulberry and blueberry. Aromatic spices develop with time
in the glass. The freshness carries through to the palate, dominated by red and blue fruits.

Pike Wines
⇐ 2022 Luccio Sangiovese

A great example of this Italian varietal, this wine is truly versatile. A great accompaniment with grilled meats, antipasti, charcuterie, pizza and
pasta. Made for immediate enjoyment in mind, but equally can handle a few years in the cellar.

Pike Wines
⇐ Pikes Beer Co Pilsener​

Brewed in a traditional Pilsner style, this lager is fresh and very aromatic. On the palate citrus and fruity notes lead into a clean and crisp finish, with
a hint of bitterness adding length and texture.
