Pikes “The Merle” Reserve Riesling 2015 (Claire Valley, Australia)
“The 2015 Riesling The Merle is youthfully reticent, offering delicate lime blossom, green apples and honeysuckle notes with a touch of coriander seed. The bone dry, light, ethereal palate has all the grace and presence of a Bolshoi ballerina with wonderful intensity and tension, finishing long and minerally.”
$62/bottle ***Limited Availability***
Wine Advocate Notes:
“This wine is true to the Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay style: fine and precise with firm acidity, and a combination of lightness of texture and intensity of flavour. The 2016 vintage was defined by concentration paired with high natural acidity, and reflects a wonderful growing season, and the results of the detailed work done in the vineyard.”
$31.50/bottle or $25.95/bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes:
“Dark aromas of ripe blackberries and black currants mulled with spicy cloves and anise rise from the glass, complemented by hints of cacao beans and dark chocolate nibs. On the palate, the wine is dense and full-bodied, with a core of black fruit compote and hints of licorice. is is a textured wine with medium tannins, nishing with a dusting of light oak tannin. While still youthful, this is quite the impressive rendition of our Estate offering.”
Winery Tasting Notes:
“All or Nothing – A wine that accepts no less than the best. Our blend of Napa Valley Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Malbec and Mixed Blacks bursts in your mouth with great intensity and lingers with a silky smooth finish that leaves you wanting for more. We created this wine with the desire to continue compelling our fans to push the boundaries, with complexity, depth and passion.”
