Pikes Riesling Clare Valley 2005
Neil and Andrew Pike have again produced a stunning zesty dry Riesling. On the nose there are racy citrus notes with hints of minerals and talc. Take a sip and the intense yet elegant citrus flavors dance on your tongue. Extraordinary length on the finish no doubt assisted by optimum acidity and lovely slatey mineral notes. Drink now or let this evolve over the next 5 to 8 years into a stunner.
A classic dry style riesling with plenty of refreshing citrus fruit acid flavors.
External Reviews for Pikes Riesling Clare Valley
Light gold. Pear, nectarine and apple aromas complicated by stone, petrol and flowers; very riesling. Round and gentle, with ripe orchard fruit flavors given shape and precision by dry mineral tones. A juicy, fresh riesling that offers a nice mix of ripe and tangy fruits and finishes on a bright note of lime zest.
Scents of green apple, lime and wet stones set the stage for the appealing, mouthwatering flavors of green apple and lime that follow. Has nicely delineated flavors, just falls a tiny bit short on the finish.
