En Primeur Request

Invariably find myself drinking a few bottles of this over the warmer months.  Some spice and kaffir lime leaf, juicy citrus, pithy and chalky texture, a nice energy about it, delivering flavour, crunch and a pretty impressive mouth-watering stony finish.  Excellent.

      Tasting Notes
      Pikes Riesling "Hills & Valleys" comes from the cool climate of Clare Valley in South Australia. Henry Pike migrated to South Australia in the late 1800's and first began a brewing company. However, today Henry's great grandson Edgar, who was a vigneron and vineyard manager, along with his son Neil and Andrew are continuing their family tradition with Pikes Wines. Neil is chief winemaker and Andrew is the viticulturalist and they continuously produce quality handcrafted riesling that receives top accolades.

      Brilliant pale green with a fresh, vibrant nose displaying aromas of lemon, granny smith apple and some perfume and floral notes. Hills & Valley Riesling is fresh and crisp with a palate full of lemon, lime and apple flavors. The wine has a touch of sweetness balanced with nice acidity providing both length and structure to the soft finish

      Drink with any seafood or white meat (of course), but it does work admirably with gruyere cheese too. Great with Indian food or anything with a hint of spice.

      "Lime nose. Very pointed and racy and lean - so cut with acidity that the residual sugar barely registers. White grapefruit laced with apple sherbet. Great lightness and energy, like quicksilver in the mouth. Just a hint of Bramley apples on the finish. Pure whetstone wine! 16 Points."
      (Tamlyn Curran, JR Purple Pages, Oct 2015)
