Pike & Joyce Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Brilliant pale green. Aroma: Very attractive fresh aromas of passionfruit , guava and a little citrus backed up by notes of snowpeas, nettles and mineral. Palate: Fresh, crisp and zesty in the mouth and finishes with a vibrant tropical / nettle flourish. Quite richly flavoured, but still has elegance, subtlety and finishes pleasantly dry. Summary: This wine can only enhance the growing status of Adelaide Hills as Australia’s best Sauvignon Blanc region. This wine has freshness and concentration, but also restraint, subtlety and poise. Try this up against a NZ version and see which you prefer. Great with caramelised onion and goat’s cheese tartlet.

The Pike & Joyce brand represents the coming together of two long established South Australian families to form a partnership in wine. The Pike family, long established in winemaking and viticulture and the Joyce family, 'fifth generation' horticulturists, have come together to develop this 25ha joint venture vineyard at Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills wine region of South Australia. The vineyard site, which was previously apple and pear orchards, is characterized by steep North and East facing slopes and possesses fantastic gravelly clay and loam soils which are ideally suited to the classic cool climate varieties that have been planted – Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The vineyard is all hand pruned and handpicked with the fruit being chilled overnight in the Joyce cool rooms, before being transported to Pike’s Clare Valley winery for vinification. Traditional old world techniques as well as modern Australian winemaking are incorporated to produce a style which reflects the variety and region. The Pike & Joyce range of wines has quickly become established as some of the Adelaide Hills finest, with the best still yet to come. Read less
