Pikes Red Mullet 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Englishman Henry Pike immigrated to South Australia in 1878 aboard the HMS Oakland. He settled in the small town of Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills and in 1886 established the family brewing business called H. Pike & Co. This name became well known throughout South Australia for its quality beer, soft drink and tonic ale, and the company used the English Pike fish on the label, which remains to this day - a symbol of Pikes' long heritage. The Winery and vineyards are situated in the historic and picturesque Polish Hill River sub region on the eastern side of the Clare Valley . The climate in this area is considerably cooler and the soils are also quite unique to the rest of the region. These attributes impart distinctive flavours and aromas to the wines from the Polish Hill River area. The 'Pikes Red Mullet' displays a deep red purple tint. Super ripe blueberries and plums are the main drivers here with hints of anise and dark chocolate. Also shows just a hint of our Clare minty regional character. Oak very much in the background. On the palate it is full and rich with loads of ripe berries, plum, chocolate and mocha flavours. The finish is soft and rounded with fine tannins and balanced acid adding some texture and length.
