2014 Pikes Eastside Shiraz Clare Valley Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The Pikes family continue to honour the rich tradition of winemaking passed down by their forebears and here they turn their hands to the distinctive Clare Valley Shiraz. Blackberry, plum and dark chocolate aromas are prominent as well as a regional lick of licorice with a hint of charry oak. This is classic Clare Valley Shiraz with intense fruit, dark chocolate and silky tannins on the finish. It’s structured, silky and sublime and will age very well in the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Deep red
Aroma: Ripe plum and black cherry fruit with hints of mocha, graphite and some spicy notes as well. A nice little touch of charry French oak in the background mix.
Palate: Medium bodied with the ripe, dark fruits to the fore with balanced acidity and savoury tannins giving length and structure to the wine.

Summary: The Clare Valley does tend to live in the shadow of our southern colleagues in the Barossa and McLaren Vale a little when it comes to Shiraz , but we produce gorgeous medium bodied wines year after year. Delicious to drink now and the next 7 -10 years. Try this with a hearty beef & stout stew.
